‘Temporary Agency’ was a three-day series of performative actions exploring concepts of value, free labour and social networks in the arts. Artists Emma Leach, The Committee for Radical Diplomacy and Yara El-Sherbini devised performances working with gallery assistants, created a photo montage and party and auctioned off a little black book of contacts. The project took place at Chelsea Space gallery.
