12 – 20:00
As part of the Royal Standard’s Biennial exhibition Service Provider Generator Projects and artist Catrin Jeans present The Agency.
On Wednesday the 10th of October The Agency will be officially opened and the public are invited to come along and meet with Jeans find out more about the project and sign up for the Crawl event due to happen on the 19th of October.
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 will be packaged and sold to a consuming public, lead by Head of Sales and invited artist Catrin Jeans. From shop fit to live office environment, The Agency will function as a platform from which the role of the artist-run space will be dissected within the context of the Biennial. Bureaucracy will be established and training days held for the current GENERATORprojects’ Committee as Jeans plays with the power structures within the organisation and explores the role of the individual Committee Member as a ‘Service Provider’ – against the backdrop of the voluntary nature of the position. The culmination of the two week project will be an event hosted by Jeans and organised by GENERATORprojects that juxtaposes and punctuates the precursory disambiguation of place.
Service Provider runs from the 14th Sept until 25th Nov
The Agency will be open from the 6th Oct until 21st Oct
Gallery open Wed – Sun 12-6pm
