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 foyer is open today 10am–5pm . Our exhibitions are always free.

Vade Mecum is a ten week studio project that runs until 17 December 2006. The project was conceived as an open invitation for people interested in walking and locative media to meet and put their ideas and inclinations into practice. The artwork takes the form of ten walks over the period of the residency. The walks were created as opportunities for anybody to experience the city with new eyes and as openings for participants to generate their own ongoing creative projects. Seven walks have been completed. An emerging theme has been the lives of the non-human within the structure of the city.
Anyone interested in creating and/or participating in the remaining walks (including the final walk, Pilgrimage, with guest artist Gregory Pryor) is encouraged to contact
