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 10am–3pm. Our exhibitions are always free.

The Golden State
‘The Golden State’ is reference to a slogan used during the 1980s on Western Australian licence plates. Martyn seeks to question how different moments in Australian history have been framed, focusing on how we are engaging with the natural landscape. The project explores the recent culling of sharks, the dinosaur footprints at Gantheaume Point in Broome and the nuclear testing at Montebello Islands by the British in the 1950s.
