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.

Quick Response Residency

Daisy Sanders’ residency at PICA comes eight years after A Resting Mess began. This large-scale, immersive installation hosts an ensemble of performers that explore human and planetary fatigue and focuses on healing through its exploration of chaos, care, community and climate crisis.
