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.

With a series of new commissioned works, Amalia Pica explores the techniques, potential, and shortcomings of communication between different species.
The project is a continuation of Pica’s longstanding consideration of language, comprehension, misunderstanding, translation, and listening. Through sculpture, photography, installation, performance and video, Pica’s work investigates how we communicate beyond the barriers of language.
Born during Argentina’s dictatorship, Pica explores the relationship between form and politics, and between history and representation. This is the artist’s first solo exhibition in Australia.
Curated at PICA by Eugenio Viola and developed in partnership with The Institute of Modern Art, Brisbane and The Power Plant, Toronto, with the generous support of the Keir Foundation.
