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 closed today. Our exhibitions are always free.

Alexandra Peters: Hatched Resident Artist

Alexandra Peters: Hatched Resident Artist

Alexandra Peters, Monash University (VIC) will develop new work through research into image archives here in Perth that will then be distorted before being silkscreened onto sourced material. These outcomes would situate themselves within the field of expanded painting through the interrogation of support structures and framing devices.

Hatched Studio Residency Program

PICA offers a studio residency to one interstate and one Perth-based Hatched artist every year. In 2023 an additional residency has been awarded to an interstate artist in acknowledgement of the high calibre of their proposal, which relates to specific research to be undertaken in Perth. The residency runs for five weeks from the opening week of the Hatched exhibition. This is an opportunity for the selected artists to develop or research new work with the artists encouraged to consider the trajectory of their wider practice. The residency project does not necessarily have to be connected to the work the artists present as part of Hatched. Hatched interstate and WA artists are selected through a callout.
