September marks the exciting tenth anniversary of PICA‘s Time-Based Art Festival, and the first curated by Artistic Director Angela Mattox. TBA is a convergence of contemporary performance and visual art in Portland, Oregon.
The Festival presents dozens of emerging talents and legacy artists from around the world, and particularly champions those individuals who challenge traditional forms and work across mediums. TBA activates the city landscape with projects that bring artists and audiences into close proximity. Itinerant programs fill warehouses, theaters, and city streets with exhibits and performances, while a full schedule of workshops, talks, and late-night socializing offers outlets for the crowds to cross and mingle.
