Castellani, Judd, Serra - Dominique Lévy

Frank Stella, Tetuan I, 1964
Local History: Castellani, Judd, Serra is at Dominique Lévy, London (and New York) until 17 January 2015.
How did I miss this? This exhibition opened on 13 October and I have only just picked up on it. An exhibition of early Stella and Judd (possibly my most favourite art of all time) alongside Enrico Castellani (who?). How did I not know about Castellani? I can't find him in any of my books about Minimalism or Judd - yet the press release for this exhibition asserts that Judd regarded [Castellani] as father of the style that came to be known as Minimalism. In fact he seems to be more readily contextualized in relation to Lucio Fontana and Piero Manzoni. Interesting.
Judging by the lists of works both shows look fabulous. 
Read a review by Roberta Smith.
