TBA:17 Asking for a Diaspora

Directors of Ori Gallery, Maya Vivas and Leila Haile will be partnering with PICA for the 2017 Time Base Arts Festival. From September 07 to 17, 2017, PICA’s Time-Based Art Festival activates the city of Portland, Oregon, with contemporary art projects that bring artists and audiences together, creating a vibrant community through live performances, music, screenings, workshops, talks, and visual art installations.

TBA is resolutely interdisciplinary, and champions those artists who are challenging forms and working across mediums, from dance to performance to visual art. TBA's spectacular 15th year features artists from near and far that urgently reflect our current cultural moment. TBA is a global festival, exposing audiences to artists from regions not normally presented in the US, with projects this year hailing from Morocco, Singapore, Canada, France, and beyond.

~About the Workshop~

Creative duo Maya Vivas and Leila Haile will facilitate a participatory discussion surrounding the history of art institutions, gatekeeping, Queer Black art, and their motivations behind opening Ori Gallery, a QTPOC-focused radical art space.
