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.

Hatched: Workshops for Schools

Hatched: Workshops for Schools

Taking place either at PICA or at your school the Hatched 2016 workshops for schools will see students engaging with the latest in contemporary art.
Toys for Tomorrow – Sculpture-making Workshops: Australian artist Olga Cironis will encourage students to experiment with a range of sculptural textiles techniques including stitching, tying, weaving and wrapping. Students will choose an everyday object to up-cycle as they explore themes including identity, domesticity and personal narrative.
Body pARTS – Sculpture-making Workshops: Visual artist Lex Randolph will lead an anatomical textiles workshop inspired by Laetitia Olivier-Gargano’s freaky, fleshy sculptures in Hatched 2016. Students will stitch, stuff, snip and stick your very own scientific specimen to take home in a jar.
