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.

Dead Ringer Opening Night Party

Dead Ringer Opening Night Party

Join us for a special spooky opening night as we celebrate the opening of Dead Ringer on Friday the 13th of November.

Featuring work by Australian and international artists, Dead Ringer seeks to draw forth the doppelgangers, ghosts and bad copies that haunt us. The exhibition unites an original group of artists whose works negotiate the extremes of portraiture by reproducing reality through film, video, painting, photography, cast objects, and 3D virtual worlds.

The evening will feature entertainment in the Perth Cultural Centre Amphitheatre from internationally recognised turntable artist Lucas ‘Granpa’ Abela, DJ and Dead Ringer artist Kynan Tan and an outdoor bar. Tasty treats are not too far away with the TruckStop outdoor foodie market near PICA, next to the WA Museum.

The exhibition will be opened by Dr Christina Lee, Lecturer in Communication and Cultural Studies at Curtin University and a scholar of ghostly spaces.
