Agnes Denes rose to international attention in the 1960s and 1970s as a leading figure in conceptual, environmental, and ecological art.

About

A pioneer of several art movements, she creates work in a broad range of media, utilizing various disciplines—science, philosophy, linguistics, ecology, psychology—to analyze, document, and ultimately aid humanity. Denes turns her analysis into beautiful, sensual visual forms, poetry, and a philosophy that she has developed over the course of her career. 

This comprehensive survey exhibition, Agnes Denes: Absolutes and Intermediates, brings together over 150 works spanning her 50-year career. The exhibition includes a comprehensive look at her important series The Philosophical Drawings (1969 – 80), “Isometric Series” (1974 – 98), “Pyramid Series” (1970 – ongoing); her realized monumental public works, including the iconic Wheatfield—A Confrontation (1982); as well as a presentation of unrealized works. The Shed has also commissioned a number of works that both expound and expand on the ideas that have been ever present throughout Denes’s career. Agnes Denes: Absolutes and Intermediates is accompanied by a fully illustrated catalogue.
