Agency Lab is an artist-led research organisation.
Agency Lab’s purpose is to enable artists to connect with institutions, individuals and processes. We host interactions across different locations and sites to offer a reflective and open platform for equal exchange in generating art projects. Our aim is to sit apart from any existing hierarchical systems when building a creative network.
Agency Lab works on two levels – one in terms of its organisation as a research project, in and of itself, and the other in terms of creative networks that enable longer term projects to develop over time through the Agency.
As Agency Lab travels it grows, by actively seeking new partners, members and affiliates. An important principle for Agency Lab, is to open up connections with future host institutions and participants. To act as a conduit for everyone we interact with, and to open every future site of activity to our partners.
Agency Lab is interested in engagements and experiments between people that are particular to each new cultural context, to date within Europe. When Agency Lab engages with a city, it invites individuals from the area to come together and consider differing perspectives on seemingly known subjects or structures.
