At PICA we recognise that we are situated within the unceded lands of the Whadjuk people of the Noongar Nation. We pay our respects and offer our gratitude to Elders past and present, and to those emerging leaders in the community. We acknowledge all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and the importance of their care and continued connection to culture, community and Country.

Always was, always will be.

Our galleries are open today 10am–3pm. Our exhibitions are always free.

Quick Response Residencies 

Quick Response Residencies 

PICA’s Quick Response studio residencies are for artists needing space to test an idea or develop a project over a short time frame of 1-6 weeks. With an open call for applications twice a year, this program aims to contribute to the cultural life of Perth by providing much-needed space, equipment and time to develop or experiment with ideas without the pressure of a completed outcome. The spaces are suited for artists who have an interest in an independently driven structure for research and development.

Through PICA’s Studio Program, artists are provided with: 

  • Exclusive use of a private, accessible studio at PICA with daily access from 7am–10pm  
  • Use of PICA’s shared areas and equipment (as available) 
  • Curatorial, production and logistical support from PICA staff 
  • Facilitated connections with local artists, organisations and communities for research and community engagement.
