Agnes Denes Rice/Tree/Burial images

A pioneer of environmental art, Agnes Denes created Rice/Tree/Burial in 1968 in Sullivan County, New York. According to Peter Selz, the renowned art historian and curator, it was "probably the first site-specific piece anywhere with ecological concerns." Denes is known for an aesthetic that engages with socio-political ideas and an artistic practice that incorporates an investigation of science, philosophy, linguistics, psychology, poetry, history and music.
