She has received the Nathan Gonesdiener Foundation for Israeli Art Prize and the TelAviv Museum of Art award for artistic encouragement from the Israel Ministry of Science, Culture and Sport. Agassi has shown her work extensively throughout the world -in sites such as the Israel Museum, Ooritto Rovesscio, Milan Triennial, Poor Farm, USA, and at the Tate Modern in London.
