Donald Judd created the Chinati Foundation in Marfa, Texas, as a very sophisticated space for art far away from NYC and other art centers. The artist was interested in placing his work in a more permanent manner than was possible in gallery or museum shows. This would later lead him to push for permanent installations for his work and that of others, as he believed that temporary exhibitions, being designed by curators for the public, placed the art itself in the background, ultimately degrading it due to incompetency or incomprehension. The specific intention of Chinati is to preserve and present to the public permanent large-scale installations by a limited number of artists. The emphasis is on works in which art and the surrounding landscape are inextricably linked. The Chinati Foundation is located in the middle of the Chihuahuan Desert, which is the most important background for it. Driving to the place is a common experience for visitors.
