The Shed presents the most comprehensive retrospective exhibition to date of the work of Agnes Denes (b. 1931), a leading figure in conceptual and environmental art. On view across both of The Shed’s expansive galleries, “Agnes Denes: Absolutes and Intermediates” brings together more than 150 works in a broad range of media spanning the artist’s 50-year career. The exhibition includes three new works commissioned by The Shed. Denes rose to international attention in the 1960s and 1970s, creating work influenced by science, mathematics, philosophy, linguistics, ecology, and psychology to analyze, document, and ultimately aid humanity. Her theories about climate change and life in an ever-changing, technologically-driven world demonstrate a deeply prescient understanding of society today.
