Agency for Small Claims is a year long exhibition space. It opens conversations about art-making practices that are research-based. It supports art-making practices that ask what is public and private space. It documents art-making practices that are temporary exchanges between people and communities.

Agency for Small Claims encourages openness and generosity in art.

Agency for Small Claims is a bulletin board.

Agency for Small Claims collaborates from a distance with art-makers around the world. It acts as agent on behalf of knowledge transmission. It makes claims on behalf of art.
