Agnes Denes

Denes says, "We must create a new language, consider a transitory state of new illusions and layers of validity, and accept the possibility that there may be no language to describe ultimate reality, beyond the language of visions." She is interested in the invisible becoming visible and has completed a series of extremely close-up photographs.

Pascal's Perfect Probability Pyramid and the People Paradox—The Pradicament (1980)

Denes was one of the first artists to be involved with the relationship of science to art, and was also a pioneer of ecological art. One of the first artists to initiate the environmental art movement, her work involves ecological, cultural and social issues, and is often monumental in scale.

Denes has written four books and holds a doctorate in fine arts (educated at the New School for Social Research and Columbia University in New York City). She lectures extensively at universities in the U.S. and abroad and participates in global conferences. Among her numerous awards are the Watson Transdisciplinary Art Award from Carnegie Mellon University (1999); the Rome Prize from the American Academy in Rome (1998); the Eugene McDermott Achievement Award from M.LT. (1990); four National Endowment Fellowships and four NYSCA grants; and the DAAD Fellowship from Berlin.
