About



THE
PERFORMANCE
AGENCY




The Performance Agency is dedicated to the curation and production of site-specific performance formats. Since its initiation in 2017, it has been informed by the artistic esprit of the avant-gardes at the origins of performance art.

In a firm belief in the transformative powers of art, The Performance Agency lives in a continuation of their energies – uniting artists from all fields to create collective spaces of experience that draw our attention to interstices, to the inexplicable, to the beauty of the everyday.

Upon invitation by Supportico Lopez, The Performance Agency curated the public program of the Archivio Conz - a collection of more than 3,000 works by late-20th-century avant-garde artists collected and produced by Italian publisher and collector Francesco Conz. Instead of reenacting the past, the program invited contemporary artists to enter a dialogue with the spirit of the time and lead to the development of The Performance Agency’s signature formats: Carefully staged performances arranged within an overall storytelling that allow audiences to traverse a world of imagination. The combination of historical references and an attentive orientation towards the future continues to guide the work.

Past and future collaborations include: Fitzpatrick Gallery (Paris), Den Frie Centre of Contemporary Art (Copenhagen), Paris Internationale, Berlin Art Week, Curated By (Wien), Hermès (Paris), Bourse de Commerce - Pinault Collection (Paris), Mamco (Geneva), Caviar (Paris, Brussels, L.A.), KW Institute for Contemporary Art (Berlin), Krone/Couronne (Biel/Bienne).

We now have studios in Berlin, Paris, Geneva and Vienna.
