Exciting TBA festival visual arts lineup announced

Last night PICA announced their "On Sight" visual arts lineup for the TBA festival September 5-14. Overall, a much stronger and more rebellious visual arts lineup than last year (there were grumbles and bad installs) with a real vis art festival feel than just some appended element to primarily performance oriented TBA lineup. For the first time since they canned their year round visual arts exhibition program I'm truly excited. Overall the curatorial arc has lots of recent Whitney Bi approved names.

Mike Kelley Day is Done ... Kelley's aesthetic can be found in a lot of the other artists here.
The Yes Men Co-presented with Pacific Northwest College of Art
Fritz Haeg Co-presented with Reed College... hmmm a rebel gardener in Portland, frankly I'm most excited about this. Haeg's talk last year was a highlight.
Ryan Trecartin I-Be Area... Another of Trecartin's videos was seen last year at Igloo in the Everett Station Lofts. It needed more attention, so good to see it in a higher profile situation... a fantastic video artist
Lizzy Fitch Residency / Commission of new work / Installation + Performance
Jacob Hartman Residency / Commission of new work / Installation + Video
Jeffry Mitchell a commission of new work
Corey Lunn a commission of new work. Lunn is a fantastic Portland artist who specializes in drawings... I still remember that Scratch show work from the old Haze gallery (I still have that postcard)
Sharon Hayes Installation + Performance
Harry Dodge + Stany Kahn Installation of new video
PAINTALLICA Site specific installation
Justin Gorman Site specific installation
Tamy Ben-Tor Gewald
