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.




Anime is a concert dedicated to ‘Animated Notation’, an emerging form of music notation where graphic instructions are put into action through interactive computing, video and lighting.

This concert features world premieres of works by composers pioneering this form, including Cat Hope (WA), Stuart James (WA), Ryan Ross Smith (USA), Lindsay Vickery (WA), Felicity Wilcox (NSW) and Dane Yates (WA) as well as the Australian premiere of a work by Bergrún Snæbjörnsdóttir (Iceland). The concert also features a new work by WA composer Jonathan Mustard, as part of Decibel’s ‘Difficult Commission’ project, in addition to a detailed sound design created by Johannes Mulder.

Presenting the scores to the audience live throughout the concert, Anime will create an equally immersive experience for the performers and audience through combined sonic and visual languages.
