At Home, I Am A Tourist
Tommy Kha's photographs flip the genre of self-portraiture on its head, by substituting the artist's body for 3D printed masks, cardboard cutouts, plaster busts, digital scans, and an endless ensemble of doppelgängers bearing his signature deadpan likeness. "Self-portrait photography has been tied together with identity so much that it's become a synonym for it," he says, "First and foremost, I am interested in how truth is easily dislodged." Growing up queer and Asian in the American South, Kha now uses the camera to control his own representation.”

The Billboard Exhibition

TBC produces an annual, month-long exhibition on the streets of Los Angeles. For over 7 years, we have carefully curated and hung work on a massive scale throughout the city, with our billboards being viewed more than 1.2 million times. Celebrating emerging and mid-career artists from around the globe, the show is open to submissions across all disciplines. Click here for more information and to learn how you can submit your work for consideration.

Artist Short Films

Preparing for our annual exhibition is a year-round process, allowing us to develop relationships with artists from all corners of the globe. Beginning last year, we added another channel for connecting audiences and creators, documenting the process and philosophy of five artists with filmmaker Sam Vladimirsky. We look forward to adding three new documentaries to this series in 2021


A digital look at today’s most interesting voices in art, from all sides of the creative spectrum. TBC Interview will be a growing resource for in-depth conversations on the issues that artists are dealing with and thinking about right now. We hope it serves as a point of discovery, as well as a place to delve deeper into the stories that drive each artist’s creative process.

Guest Artists

Each of our exhibitions are headlined by one or more acclaimed guest artists. In addition to having their work featured on billboards throughout Los Angeles, these individuals help raise awareness and increase exposure for other TBC participants. Past guest artists have included Ed Ruscha, Lawrence Weiner, Marilyn Minter, Paul McCarthy, Alex Prager, Jack Pearson and Laurie Simmons.



TBC began with a single billboard and has grown to an average of 40 billboards per show. That wouldn't be possible without the help of our generous donors. TBC consists of an all-volunteer staff, so your donations go directly to producing art shows and bringing attention to artists. We are a tax deductible 501c3.
