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.

Between the election and the inauguration in the United States is a period known unpoetically as the “transition.” Our own transition feels like a categorical shift, a break in the paradigm. It is closer to Gramsci’s interregnum - “the crisis...that the old is dying and the new cannot be born.” The synonyms here don’t fit: progression, shift, evolution. Antonyms feel more like the truth: decline, cease, or decrease.
This interregnum in the nation-state is transempirical: beyond experiential knowledge. The beyond, also, of empire. We go across, through; we change thoroughly. We transition.
