As a not-for-profit community asset, PICA belongs to all Western Australians as a source of inspiration, a gathering place, and an incubator for the art and ideas of today. 

We believe that contemporary artists are the trailblazers, innovators and changemakers that give us a glimpse of what is possible. So we work hard to make contemporary arts experiences accessible and engaging to diverse communities, while championing radical new art practices and embracing challenging subject matter that fosters awareness and understanding.

To do all of this, we need the support of individuals like you who share our values, our sense of adventure, and our desire to create career-defining moments for artists and life-enhancing experiences for audiences.

When you donate to PICA you are putting your love of art and artists, and your belief in their positive impact on people and communities, into action. Becoming a PICA Donor is a simple yet powerful way to express your love of contemporary art and keep PICA free for everyone.

Put your feelings into action and help us redefine how contemporary arts are created, supported, experienced and valued. Gifts of every size make a difference and any amount over $2 is tax-deductible.

Salon

PICA Salon Vernissage is a Gala like no other – a unique celebration of contemporary art, music, food, drink and fashion. Held annually since 2009 as way to thank and acknowledge PICA’s vital supporters, the Salon Vernissage always evokes a sense of wonder and surprise, while offering opportunities for guests to either begin or grow their art collections. This exclusive and much anticipated celebration has developed a reputation for being one of the most sophisticated events on the Perth arts calendar, with highly sought-after tickets only available to ART1000 Donors and above.

The annual PICA Salon is a contemporary reworking of the traditional Salon, the official exhibition of the Académie des Beaux-Arts in Paris that showed the works of the preeminent painters of the day. Vernissage is the French term for “varnishing”, and while it originally derived from the habit of artists vanishing their paintings the day before an exhibition opening, it has come to signify the private preview before an exhibition opens to the public. Works are for sale on the night of PICA Salon Vernissage, with the majority of sale proceeds returning directly to the artists and a portion benefiting the ongoing work of PICA.
