Agnes Denes: Absolutes and Intermediates

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

The Shed presents a comprehensive survey exhibition, Agnes Denes: Absolutes and Intermediates, bringing together over 150 works spanning the conceptual, environmental and ecological artist’s 50-year career. The exhibition includes her  series the “Philosophical Drawings” (1969 – 80), “Map Projections” (1973 – 79), and “Pyramid Series” (1970 –); her realised monumental public works, including the iconic Wheatfield—A Confrontation (1982); as well as a presentation of unrealised works.

Agnes Denes is a pioneer of several art movements, creating work in a wide range of mediums, touching on and utilising various disciplines—science, philosophy, linguistics, ecology, psychology—to analyse, document, and ultimately aid humanity. Her analysis is transformed into beautiful, sensual visual forms, poetry, and her uniquely developed philosophy.
