the Agency





the Agency is a commercial gallery with a programmatic approach to presenting contemporary emerging art in an international context, established in 1996. the gallery has participated in over 23 international artfairs from 1996 onwards. In 2001 the Agency received the Art Basel Statements Prize.

the Agency is renowned for realising first or early shows with artists such as Douglas Gordon, Rebecca Warren, Zineb Sedira, international artists such as Zoe Leonard, Ken Lum, Ming Wong, Peter Zimmermann and carefully placing works in private and museal collections.

An ongoing concern of the gallery is the producer-led support of innovative artistic practice. the Agency supports analog and digital film/video, event based performance, sound art and electronic media as part of and parallel to the main programme and engages in collaborative curatorial projects with galleries and institutions globally.

Our artist and project index serves to facilitate and mark both in-house and collaborative projects as well as to highlight longer term and curatorial co-operations with artists and cultural practitioners across various disciplines.
