PICA Salon 2014

PICA Salon 2014

Curated by Nadia Johnston.

The PICA Salon takes the traditional salon concept and twists it into an exquisitely designed microcosm of artworks by today’s most renowned contemporary artists.
This annual exhibition celebrates the stellar history of Perthʼs leading contemporary arts organisation by showcasing artworks for sale by a selection of those who have exhibited at the institute over the last 23 years.

Saturday 2 August, 7-10pm
West End Gallery

The PICA Salon Vernissage has gained a reputation for being one of Perth’s most sophisticated events and now returns for its fifth year! Reserved for PICA’s ART1000 and ART5000 Donors and the exhibiting artists, the opening night of the PICA Salon is a collector’s dream. It features the auction of new artworks by the highly collectable William Kentridge and Richard Bell, plus an incredible dress by Japanese designer Tsumori Chisato thanks to Dilettante, a special 90 minute Beer School for 6 people thanks to Little Creatures and one secret pop-up auction artwork to be revealed on the night!
With live music throughout the evening by Justin Burford, a DJ set by Kynan Tan, spectacular canapés by Heyder and Shears and cocktails designed by Ezra Pound, this Salon Vernissage is set to be an unforgettable experience for you and your collection! The night will also feature a very exciting appearance from a special guest.
