PICA presents up to ten exhibitions each year across four seasons. Our exhibitions showcase the work of artists from Western Australia and across the globe, offering a range of narratives and perspectives.
PICA works with artists at all stages of their careers, from recent graduates to presenting first-time solo exhibitions and surveys of established figures. As a site for the production of new artworks, PICA supports artists to develop, produce and present work driven by critical issues of our time. At PICA artists are encouraged to take risks, explore new and emerging art forms, and experiment with ideas, materials and approaches.
PICA’s exhibitions are accompanied by dynamic public programming – artists’ talks, forums and workshops – to deepen engagement with the artists’ work and practices.
Online you will find information about our past, current and upcoming exhibition seasons along with installation documentation, commissioned texts and artist videos.
