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.

We are closed today. Our exhibitions are always free.

Jamie Macchiusi and Gemma Weston will use their studio residency to explore the iconography and cultural significance of the Western/Australian ‘weekend away’. The studio will be utilised as a kind of campsite – a place to temporarily accommodate their ingenuity, to publicly indulge their isolationist desires and to ‘reconnect’ with some real or internal wilderness – allowing the artists to develop their shared interest in bricolage as a methodology for art-making and to explore the intersection of personal and cultural narratives.
