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 year we will pursue parallel narratives under the framework Unstable States, New Constitutions in our first long term feature. Through this itinerary we aim to study our increasingly global instability as a method of learning and unlearning the present and gather the constellations and speculative forms rising from this constant state of crisis. We ask: Can this unprecedented moment of dissolution also be an opportunity for rearticulation and rearrangement?
For the month of September, guest editor Samuel Hertz has assembled a group of artists/theorists whose work focuses of re-imagining ideas and forms of perception. He asks: Is there a sensible way to speak about perception as a political act? Are there methods of performance that identify and enact new political and global sensitivities? What does a focus on perceptive practices add to conversations about re-thinking institutions, senses, sexualities, ecologies, and aesthetics?
