We Got Each Other’s Backs

Part of a long-term documentary project by interdisciplinary artist Carlos Motta— in collaboration with artists Heldáy de la Cruz, Julio Salgado, and Edna Vázquez– We Got Each Other’s Back is a three-part, multi-channel video installation featuring portraits of queer artists and activists in the United States who are or have been openly undocumented, and who are producing work to denounce historic and present-day broken US immigration policies.

Demian DinéYazhi’ & Kevin Holden: Shatter

SHATTER/// is an extractive performance: an eclipse of electronic sound, poetry, and acts of destruction amplified into a cathartic shattering of the racist stereotypes that have, for centuries, violated the rights, sacrality, and complexities of Indigenous cultural identity.

PICA’s Time-Based Art Festival

Portland Institute for Contemporary Art has championed the practice of contemporary artists since 1995. In this year—our 25th—we need to talk, share, experience, process, and open our eyes to new possibilities—to the newly possible. TBA:20 is a platform for this much-needed exchange.
