As a part of this fall’s 2010 Time-Based Art Festival, PICA will present The People’s Biennial, a new initiative and experiment in exhibition making by Harrell Fletcher and Jens Hoffmann. On February 6, the curators will be in Portland to host an intimate talk about their own practice and their aspirations for the show.

Together, they are seeking recommendations from the public about the most interesting work being made right here and right now, specifically by artists and non-artists who are operating outside of traditional presenting institutions and systems. This could include a child who makes incredible science fair projects, a person knitting fantastic clothing, a developmentally disabled artist making engaging drawings or sculptures, a mathematician that composes visually compelling notations, or a sign painter who creates great window displays. Join the conversation and think way outside the white cube.
