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 foyer is open today 10am–5pm . Our exhibitions are always free.

Abstraction and Narrative Workshops for Schools

Abstraction and Narrative Workshops for Schools

Artist Anna Dunnill will lead students in a series of activities exploring a variety of creative outcomes drawing on students’ own personal narratives. Students will work across disciplines, exploring visual and written outcomes from creative writing, sculpture, textiles, drawing and collage to produce works that articulate narrative through abstract imagery.
After a short tour of the exhibition PICA Salon: Epic Narratives, exploring the many forms of narrative representation in the show, this workshop asks students to consider and articulate their own stories, responding to prompts using different processes and materials. They will investigate a variety of means to commemorate significant occasions, and create monuments to the small things in life.
Anna Dunnill is an artist and one half of collaborative duo Snapcat. In both her solo and collaborative practices, she uses a variety of forms (including writing drawing, painting, sculpture, video and performance) to build narratives about survival, communication and bravery. Later in 2015, Anna will be undertaking a residency at PICA.
