WE ARE THE INSTITUTION: after inside/outside there is this mass of people. We are already whole. We’re all here together. Administrators need to be involved in the uselessness of practice. Beyond outcome and object, there is a culture of questions, a pursuit of pleasure, an acceptance of our inevitable wasting. This workshop will create a non-utilitarian space for the human basis of art. Though open to all, this workshop is designed for art’s administrators and artists working in concert in the hot bed of the studio. Come, be useless, be pleasure, be awkward, be sincere, be wasted.

About Workshops: Festival workshops are a rare opportunity for Portlanders and visitors alike to work with TBA artists from around the world. Advance registration is required for all workshops; call the TBA Central Box Office at 503.224.PICA to register.
