    Étienne Hajdú's sculptures were introduced to American audiences through "The New Decade: 22 European Painters and Sculptors" show at the Museum of Modern Art, New York, in 1955. His sculptures were also exhibited alongside line drawings in "Sculptures and Drawings from 7 Sculptors" at the Guggenheim Museum in 1958, the same year he received his New York gallery debut at M. Knoedler & Company.
