Agnes Denes

Hungarian/American (1931)

About the artist:

Agnes Denes, born in Budapest, Hungary in 1931. Her family survived the war, the Nazi occupation, and moved to Sweden on their way to the United States. Still a teenager, she created her first environmental/philosophical work, Bird Project, in Sweden, comparing migrating bird colonies to people — the migrants of the world. She studied painting at the New School and Columbia University in New York. She began her artistic career as a poet. Her poetic practice eventually became works of a unique intellectual content and form she later called Visual Philosophy. She has said that the repeated changes in language led her to focus on the visual arts. She soon abandoned painting, due to the constraints of the canvas, and focused broadly on ideas she could explore in other mediums, saying, "I found its vocabulary limiting."

In the early 1970s, she joined the A.I.R. Gallery as a founding member. She has since participated in more than 600 exhibitions at galleries and museums throughout the world, and has written 6 books. She has one son, Robert T. Frankel and twin grandchildren, Ian and Alessa Frankel. She lives and works in New York City.
