Agnes Denes

The multidisciplinary work of Agnes Denes spans sculpture, performance, poetry, drawing, installation, and scientific inquiry in the fields of mathematics, philosophy, biology, and linguistics. She stands out as a pioneer of Environmental Art and one of the few acknowledged female figures in Land Art. Denes is well-known for her landscape installations, which serve as thought-provoking commentaries on cultural, social, and ecological issues, questioning Western notions of growth and development. The work The Butterfly Experiment – Hope (2023), which Denes developed especially for the n.b.k. Editions collection, is part of a series of computer-generated artworks.

Agnes Denes's (*1931 in Budapest, lives and works in New York) work has been shown internationally in numerous solo and group exhibitions since the 1970s, including at Galerie im Körnerpark (2023); Museum Tinguely, Basel (2022); Serpentine North Gallery, London (2022); Museum Ludwig, Cologne (2022); The Shed, New York (2019); Whitney Museum of American Art, New York (2018); Museum of Modern Art, New York (2018); documenta (2014; 1977); Venice Biennale (2022; 1980; 1978; 2001).
