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.

Julie Dowling

Making her first foray into multi-media, Julie Dowling is a Perth based Badimaya artist known for her paintings detailing land, country and family. At once gentle and incisive, this installation is both a self-portrait and a wider history. It reveals an unfolding personal journey and offers glimpses of her physical and spiritual reconnection with her ancestral country – an experience Dowling has meticulously documented via film and photography.
