Temporary Art Review is a platform for contemporary art criticism that focuses on alternative spaces and critical exchange among disparate art communities. Temporary was founded in the Midwest with a national network of contributors and highlights both practical and theoretical discourse through exhibition reviews, interviews, essays and features on artist-run spaces and projects.Artistic strategies are increasingly diverse and there is unprecedented fluidity between the various roles individuals inhabit as artists, critics, curators, collaborators and collectives. Temporary Art Review traces these temporary alliances and strategies, providing a record of their development and presenting critical discussion around the projects that emerge.
Temporary decentralizes the conversation about contemporary practice by emphasizing the breadth of projects taking place outside of traditional art centers, offering an alternative perspective from regionally organized contributors and serves as a resource for the greater art community.

Over the next several months we are engaging the legacy of institutional critique, ongoing institutional and organizational experiments, and Gerald Raunig’s notion of ‘instituent practices’ understood as artistic and curatorial practices that “invent new forms of instituting.” Question include: How do artists and independent projects challenge, comply with, and sometimes imitate traditional institutional forms? Further, how should (self-initiated) organizations consider their own operational mechanisms in order to responsibly address the social, political and cultural fabric in which they operate?
