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.

In recent times we work under the banners of company logos and trademarks, heralds of many a workforce that are now mostly nameless and faceless. Globally, a better part of the world’s population struggles to earn what is seen to be an adequate living. As the cost of basic needs rise, the desires of the multitude build exponentially in a strange and disproportionate equation. Continuous advances towards horizons that are greater than any individual are changing the landscape of achievement for all of us. Now, progress seemingly happens for the sake of advancement, while actions are undertaken without any care for eventual outcomes. Over the duration of Kieran Stewart’s studio residency, he will create and exhibit a new series of works that touch on our contemporary push for perpetual achievement without climax. This production will utilise video projections, performance, installation and photographic imagery.
