By the 1960s, legendary conceptual artist Donald Judd had grown tired of New York. That's when he remembered Marfa, a cowboy village lost in West Texas--the perfect place, he thought, to be free at last. Judd, ione of the fouders of minimalism, ended up turning the town into one of the world's leading places for contemporary art.
Today, despite the artist's death in 1994, Marfa still acts as a magnet for artistic refugees. What are all these modern-day "Marfians" looking for? In five subjective and suggested portraits, I [art] MARFA is a poetic postcard, sent from an eerie Texas ghost town that never destined itself to so much strangeness.
