Artist Bio

Ann Agee (b. 1959, Philadelphia) is a contemporary artist living and working in Brooklyn. Working primarily in ceramic she has increasingly become known for her installations, appropriating traditional decoration motifs and playing with the organization of domestic interiors. Her recent sculptural works explore subjects both ornamental and narrative touching upon themes personal and social in domestic life, child rearing, and labor. She combines the sensibilities of highly ornate decorative objects with quotidian household interiors to make a signature style that is profoundly complex, laced with play and humor. Agee attended Cooper Union School of Art for her BFA (’81) and received her MFA from Yale University in 1986.

Agee recently created major installations at the Brooklyn Museum of Art, NY (2012) and at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, PA, (2010). Her work has been seen in prominent clay exhibitions Dirt on Delight, Institute of Contemporary Art, PA (traveled to the Walker Art Center, MN); and Conversations in Clay, Katonah Art Museum, NY. She was a recipient of the John Simon Guggenheim Fellowship (2011), The Louis Comfort Tiffany Foundation Award (1997) and a National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship (1989, 1992), among others. Works by Agee can be found in the collections of: The Brooklyn Museum of Art, NY; The Philadelphia Museum of Art, PA; The RISD Art Museum, RI; The Los Angeles County Museum of Art, CA; The Henry Art Museum in Seattle, WA; The Kohler Art Center in Sheboygan, WI; The Museum of Contemporary Art in Miami, FL.
