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.

We are open today from 10am to 5pm. Our exhibitions are always free.

Donate to PICA

As a not-for-profit cultural organisation, PICA believes that contemporary artists are the trailblazers, innovators and change-makers that give us a glimpse of what is possible. In acknowledgement of this, 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 appreciation 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 support for contemporary art and keep PICA free for everyone.

Marco D’Orsogna, Commissioners Champion

“Being involved in the Commissioning Fund has been a truly rewarding experience. For me, helping to provide the means to access the essential tools and people for the development of a creative work and then witnessing the result, is exceptionally gratifying. I love the fact that PICA pushes creative boundaries and the result is always surprising, poignant and thoroughly entertaining.”

Minali Gamage, Art1000 Champion

“I remember the very moment I knew I wanted to give to PICA and be a part of its journey… It was during a conversation I had with PICA’s Philanthropy Manager where she talked me through all that PICA does with contemporary artists, over what can sometimes be many years, to nurture and support them as they hone their practice and develop as artists and, importantly, as people. This ‘quiet and steady’ approach leading to a relationship with an artist of depth and longevity captivated me and I knew I wanted in.”
