Edge of my seat. Portland Institute for Contemporary Art (PICA) announces the artist lineup for the 2010 Time-Based Art Festival (TBA) at its annual gala, TADA! next weekend, Saturday, April 24 from 6-10 PM at The Bison Building (419 NE 10th). A few tickets are still available ($150) for this main fundraiser of the year for PICA’s programming, especially TBA.

Portland-based choreographer (and TBA:10 artist!) Noelle Stiles and Unrecognizable Now perform with Delaney Kelly (music), and Chris Lael Larson (video). Simpatica provides dinner.

Below is a detail of artist Storm Tharp’s "Suit," just one of the items at auction. Tharp, who, as I mentioned in an earlier post, is one of two Portland-based artists with work in the Whitney Biennial, will be an artist in residence for TBA:10. !
