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.

Andrew Nicholls

Local artist, Andrew Nicholls is primarily known for his ink drawings that reference Victorian woodcuts and engraving to allude to that era’s strict moral principles, sexual repression and overt sentimentality. At PICA, he will begin developing a series of short digital video works mimicking the aesthetic sensibility of early special-effects cinema, in the style of Melies and Christensen. Andrew will use the PICA studio to extend his ink drawings into stylised film sets referencing historical depictions of heaven, hell and the underwater realm. The completed works will feature in the group exhibition pink (5 July – 15 August).
