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 galleries are open today 12–5pm. Our exhibitions are always free.

During her residency Victorian artist Emma Hewitt will explore the multiple significances of fence lines and other boundary markers that crisscross the long open spaces of the Australian landscape. She will examine the poetics, symbolism and meaning of the fences we use to divide land and define and separate our lives. Her work points out the redundancy and incongruity of artificially dividing land and hints at the persistence of the natural world they divide.
