Agnes Denes. Concept Into Form. Works 1970-1990

Chicago: The Arts Club of Chicago, 1990. 1st Edition. Quarto, publisher's stapled stiff glossy paper wraps printed in black.

Exhibition catalog for an exhibition of works by pioneering conceptual artist Agnes Denes. The show ran from May 9 to June 29, 1990, and featured drawings and documentation of conceptual projects, including the 1.8 acre wheatfield that she planted and harvested in 1982 on a landfill at the foot of the World Trade Center. An environmental activist with a lifelong fascination for mathematics, Denes began producing studies of topographical motifs in the late 1960s as an entreaty to reimagine the earth and recognize our responsibility for it. According to Denes, when Buckminster Fuller saw one of her books a few years before his death he was so impressed he exclaimed, "I should have done this!" Illustrated with black-and-white drawings, diagrams and reproductions; includes exhibition checklist. Fine. Item #2500
