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.

Open Studio Night is PICA’s most popular series of artist talks that connect you personally with our current studio residents and provide invaluable insight into the artists’ processes and practices.

Through an act of performative autobiography, Australian-born, New York based Bonnie Lane exposes private experiences that subvert prescribed gender roles. In a practice that spans video, photography, installation, sculpture, sound, collage, short stories; and virtual, IRL, and secret performance, she reveals the uncertainty of sexual identity in the digital age.
Ross Hamilton Frew’s practice is rooted in mark making and concerned with the properties and relations of points, lines and surfaces. Be it through drawing, collage, print or assemblage, his work always adheres to a series of predetermined or self imposed rules and structures.
Sophie Durand is a multimedia artist from Perth whose complex and immersive works combine installation, film and performance. Her research is theoretically and formally underpinned by ideas of place in relation to exhibition and installation practice.
