PICA presents the 11th-annual Time-Based Art Festival, presenting dozens of emerging talents and legacy artists from around the world. Visual installations and live performances fill out theaters, temporary galleries, and unexpected spaces on both sides of the river, activating the city of Portland with art and energy. The Festival champions the explorations and experiments of artists working across and outside of traditional boundaries and encourages the curiosity of our audiences. From morning workshops, to afternoon salons and talks, to evening shows, and late-night happenings, TBA is an all-hours forum for new ideas and experiences.

TBA creates a space outside of our regular lives. It charges the last days of summer with the joyful energy of exploration and new ideas. A single moment at the Festival can inspire us to look differently at the next day. We just ask that you take a first step, take a seat in the house, take a stand beside an artist, and take the time to experience it.
