The Agency is a paradigm of the cultural economy, an articulation of the values of an artist-run space through the commodification of one within another. Searching for a sense of value, Dundee-based GENERATORprojects was packaged and sold to a consuming public, lead by Head of Sales and invited artist Catrin Jeansm as part of the Royal Standard's Liverpool Biennial residency 'Service Provider'. From shop fit to live office environment, The Agency functioned as a platform from which the role of the artist-run space was dissected within the context of the Biennial. Bureaucracy was established and training days held. The two-week residency ended with a Crawl Inclusive tour.
