TEMPORARY. ART. PLATFORM (T.A.P) is a curatorial platform that develops art projects relating to the public realm. It aims to shift art practice and discourse toward a complex contextual network of public interest and concerns.
T.A.P. is also concerned with legal and artistic research that stimulates more proactive attitudes toward curating art projects outside the art world, including private partners, municipalities and councils.
T.A.P supports and encourages art practices concerned with public space, urban and social design, architecture, as well as a contextual approach to curating. It intervenes in non-places, urban spaces and rural contexts, focusing on practices that forge innovative modes of production in response to their context. It participates in the creation of new networks that engage art in the public sphere.
T.A.P’s mission is realized through three initiatives:
– Research: generating an inventory of visual arts practices dealing with public space in Lebanon. Thus, building knowledge about aesthetics, methodologies and legal frameworks.
– Public interventions: encouraging, producing and promoting art practices in the public realm by providing means for production and interdisciplinary residency programs.
– The percent for art: Lobbying public and private entities to contribute 1% of construction budgets for commissioning a public artwork.
T.A.P (TEMPORARY. ART. PLATFORM) is an international platform based in Beirut, Lebanon. Its initiatives are predominantly local but it also collaborates with like-minded international organizations as well as artists, architects, urban planners, curators, researchers and cultural practitioners. It is a non-profit association registered under Lebanese law.
