Time-Based Art Festival

PICA’s annual Time-Based Art Festival is a convergence of contemporary art, international artists, global audiences, and local in-person gatherings. It is a time for us to come together in celebration of experimental works and ideas and to push the boundaries of what it means to make—and who can participate in—contemporary art. Since 1995 Portland Institute for Contemporary Art has been working on and against this edge, championing artists from around the world. This year you can enjoy the festival with pay-what-you-can pricing and our new single-pass structure. Please join us in-person, online, in conversation, on your own time, and (sometimes) within a set schedule. Whether you are new to TBA or a longtime fan of the Festival, we are excited and grateful for the opportunity to share this year’s TBA with you.
