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.

We are closed today. Our exhibitions are always free.

About the Artist

Jxnior is a face that most people are familiar with, be it behind the bar or behind the decks, love and passion radiates through them. Although they are known for Afrocentric bass driven selections, their incredible musical range has them fully equipped for any vibe in any space.

Hello there! I’m Allira, a vibrant mix of Whadjuk Noongar and African heritage. My days are beautifully occupied with a blend of music, work, and artistic expression. You’ll often find me immersed in the world of sound, whether it’s through listening to various genres or working at RTRFM, where music is not just a passion, but a profession. But my connection to music goes beyond just listening – I adore the intricate symphony of all types and combinations of sounds. It’s this deep appreciation that led me to the exciting world of DJing. Crafting and mixing music is where I truly come alive, and it’s a gig that feels like home to me.

Soul Alphabet is a Boorloo based collective supporting Bla(c)k and Brown communities through art, music & other creative work! Over the past 5 years, they’ve held workshops, events and group exhibitions.

DJ Maxxi is mostly a radio broadcaster but has been known to DJ at select events and parties including PCIA Silent Disco, Blue Room, No Lights No Lycra, RTR special live events outdoors and in bars, and house parties. She curates tunes that are based on a underlying rhythm that is soulful, melodic and beat driven ranging from soul, funk, disco, house to dub, reggae and hip hop. 

DJ Osric is not just a DJ; he is a maestro of the turntables, a curator of sonic journeys, a radio station owner and a true virtuoso when it comes to creating a vibe. With a career spanning over 30 years, DJ Osric has established a reputation as one of the most original and dynamic DJs in Perth.

Immerse yourself in the deep grooves and soulful melodies of Altona Sound System, your local DJ with a profound appreciation for 90s house music. Come join us and let the music move you.


PICA After Dark is supported by Community Engagement Partner City of Perth and Beverage Partner Rocky Ridge Brewing.
