Body Prints, Philosophical Drawings, and Map Projections, 1969 - 1978 is an exhibition of seminal drawings by artist Agnes Denes. For the past five decades, Denes's practice has become synonymous with ecologically driven interventions into the landscape and socially driven approaches that symbiotically engage with the environment. As a pioneer of the Environmental and Conceptual Art movements, Denes applies the exacting precision and unwavering consistency of mathematics to the often subjective, tenuous, and unstable concepts of ecological awareness and environmental sustainability. The three bodies of work on view at SMMoA demonstrate how Denes marshals the disciplines of geometry, philosophy, cartography, and the physical sciences to create 'Visual Philosophy'—her signature method of illustrating how we exist in the world.
