Welcome to TEMP/reviews, a new, MPLS-based, online arts platform that will take
shape over the coming days, months and years. We
aren’t really sure what the future holds for this site and
there are many possible ways it may evolve. Follow our Instagram account, @tempmpls, to
receive notifications of when new content is available on the website.
TEMP/reviews is mainly meant to be a platform for art reviews, and it is, but there are no absolute rules as far as what the content can be, at least not yet.
Today we are publishing a review by Mike Curran of a group exhibition of international artists at the Walker Art Center, Designs For Different Futures.
From the Walker’s website: “The role of designers in shaping how we think about possible futures is the subject of Designs for Different Futures, a major exhibition organized by the Walker Art Center, Philadelphia Museum of Art, and the Art Institute of Chicago. The presentation brings together some 80 dynamic works that address the challenges and opportunities that humans may encounter in the years, decades, and centuries ahead.”
If you would like to contribute or respond to something written here you can contact me, Ryan Fontaine, or Brooks Turner at TEMPMPLS@gmail.com. No promises we’ll publish your work, but we encourage your content and dialogue.
This website and whatever TEMP becomes was made possible with the help of Bockley Gallery, Second Shift, SooVac, Rosalux, PlayTimers, Company Projects, Rochester Art Center, HAIRandNAILS, Forage Modern, and Public Functionary. Thank you, everyone!
