The aim of The ‘temporary Museum is to exhibit and discuss contemporary painting in all its various forms, whether fashionable or unfashionable (at the moment). It is our opinion that a painting, by virtue of its compact, intense stillness, is the perfect object for both contemplation and conversation. We actually think (arguably) that painting and drawing create the world that we see; they are the most subtle and evolutionary of the visual arts.
Socrates rejected painting (and all the arts) partly because there is no absolute criterion for its worth. Conversely, we reject absolute criteria in favor of shifting ones that need to be continuously established and demolished.
