Agam's work is related to the rejection of the traditional concepts of painting and sculpture in favor of the kinetic and op art. His paintings and three dimensional objects can be either transformed manually or else are made in such a way that the images shift and change as one walks in front of them. Agam stresses the importance of the two dimensional quality of what in reality may have three dimensions.

Agam have had numerous exhibitions and installations worldwide, at the MoMA in New York, in St. Louise, Paris, Dusseldorf, Jerusalem and more.
