In the current situation, as artistic production has been abruptly put on hold by the pandemic condition, we find ourselves in urgency to find new ways to continue our work.

In times when gathering is forbidden, we seek alternatives for staying in touch. We are setting up temporary studios within constrained spaces of our living-rooms or bed-rooms. From those distant places, out of our isolations, we project our practices into this new virtual shared studio.

TEMPORARY.SHOW is a virtual extension of the DE LICEIRAS 18 - TEMPORARY ART COMMUNITY artist-in-residence in Porto, PT. The physical space is currently indefinitely shut down to slow down further spreading of the COVID-19.

During the time of the global lockdown invited artists-in-residence of this virtual space will share with you their works, sketches, texts, streamed performances and others composed into an intertwined, ever-changing visual dialogue.

All live sessions will be announced in the section SHOW. Stay tuned!

This platform was established in March 2020. It is designed and curated by Maja Renn and co-curated by Johannes Buch.

The material published here between 5th of April 2021 for the next year was developed by a loose collective of artists meeting online for Driven By Points Made Apart, a project supported by Arts Council Malta. 

We like the idea of this platform here as sort of a virtual art space that can be sublet by different projects. Aidan Celeste, Buch, and Letta Shtohryn up until March 2022. Join us for more online experiments, and each other's approach to making anything, anywhere, and out of this world.

Driven By Points Made Apart brings together a loose collective of artists for online collaboration. These include a combination of participants who are open to collaboration, Formal collaborators who can run workshops and interventions across our peers, and contributors who can share more specific resources and experiences.

Collaborators are invited to run workshops and interventions for our loose collective of peers, and or the public at hand. These workshops generally takeplace on Saturday mornigns, or Thursday evenings. If you'd like to host an intervention, we're more than happy to share your ideas. Our subsections under the OPEN STUDIO, are also available for peers to follow up on each intervention in their own time.

We are also looking for more specific contributions. If you have any tips, tricks, online interventions, or simply, a useful tool in mind, please go ahead and get in touch on info@temporary.show and we can talk abot a contribution, such as :

Physical  Computing for Speculative Designs
Hosting Augmented Reality objects in Public Space
Making a Soundscapes with Spoken Word

These contributions are generally 500 to 800 words, and will be included in the ongoing toolkit. In addition, contributors are also invited to take on the role of a formal collaborator by providing a workshop for this community and its peer network of artists.
