Agathe Snow (French pronunciation: ​[aɡatə snɔ:]; née Aparru)[1] (born 1976) is an artist based in New York City.


Snow was born in Corsica and moved to New York at age 11.[2][3] She works in a variety of media and has collaborated with artists including Alex Arcadia, Rita Ackermann, Michael Portnoy and Emily Sunblad.[4] One of her best known endeavours was No Need To Worry, The Apocalypse Has Already Happened… at James Fuentes Gallery in 2007, in which Snow took the starting point of a recently flooded Manhattan[5] as a conceit on which to base a five-week performance and gallery-wide installation, including a sculpture of the belly of a beached whale.[4]

Snow married artist Dash Snow when he was 18 and she was 23 in 2000.[6] Before Dash Snow died on July 13, 2009, according to his obituary in The New York Times, their marriage had ended in divorce.[1]

Snow's entry to the 2008 Whitney Biennial, held March 9-March 16 at the Park Avenue Armory annex of the biennial, was "Stamina: Gloria Et Patria," a week-long dance-a-thon.[7]
