Temporary Art Review was founded in the Midwest with a national network of contributors, and decentralizes the conversation about contemporary practice by emphasizing the breadth of projects taking place outside of traditional art centers. Temporary offers an alternative perspective from regionally organized contributors, serves as a resource for the greater art community and highlights both practical and theoretical discourse through exhibition reviews, interviews, essays and features on artist-run spaces and projects.
EXHIBITION REVIEWS are presented on an on-going basis in a short format to promote immediate and timely responses to exhibitions. In addition to our formal reviews, audiences can make their voice heard by posting thoughts about an exhibition in real time via Twitter using the hashtag #temporaryreview. Comments will post as rolling commentary directly to our front page.
SITE/PROJECT PROFILES are structured to highlight innovative sites and projects as commanding models for sustainable practice and serve as a practical resource for artists and administrators.
INTERVIEWS feature long-form conversations with artists, curators, community organizers and more.
Temporary Art Review was founded in March, 2011 in St. Louis by editors Sarrita Hunn and James McAnally. Regional editors are added regularly to manage content from their region.
Temporary Art Review is currently a volunteer effort, however, in the coming months will be developing a program to help raise operational funds.
Temporary Art Review is a published by The Luminary Center for the Arts (St. Louis, MO).
