Time-Based Art (TBA) Festival
Sunday, September 15
PICA’s 17th Annual Time-Based Art Festival (TBA) gathers artists and audiences from around the world for ten days of contemporary performance, music, visual art, film, workshops, lectures, food, drink, conversation, and celebration. Returning September 5-15, 2019, join to be present in the moment when anything can happen.
Called “the best contemporary summer festival in the country” by The New York Times, Portland’s Time-Based Art Festival (TBA) returns every September with 10 days of boundary-pushing performances, visual art and projects that defy categorization.
By Oregon Arts Watch:
"The Time Based Art Festival, better known as TBA, has been PICA’s definitive program since 2003, bringing artists from around the world for a multi-day series of innovative performances, conversations and parties. This year’s program will see the return of local favorites such as Like a Villain (a.k.a. vocalist/composer Holland Andrews) and drag performer Carla Rossi (Anthony Hudson), as well as new works ranging from Los Angeles playwright Asher Hartman’s trailer-park meta-play “The Dope Elf” to Oslo-based Mia Habib’s communal dance “All - A Poem of Protest.”
