The PICA Salon takes the traditional salon concept and twists it into an exquisitely designed microcosm of artworks by today’s most renowned contemporary artists.
This annual exhibition celebrates the stellar history of Perthʼs leading contemporary arts organisation by showcasing artworks for sale by a selection of those who have exhibited at the institute over the last 23 years.
