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 10am–3pm. Our exhibitions are always free.

Public Demands

Public Demands

Adelaide-based sound artist, filmmaker and performance wrangler Jason Sweeney presents the aftermath of his Public Demands project. Public Demands was a six-week creative stand-off between Jason and his audience. During his project, the public had been invited to make demands of Jason and he had to respond by making performances, songs, sound, films and text. Demands were requested to adhere to five artform options: a pop song, a structuralist film, a soundscape, a three minute documented performance and a relentless list. Screened simultaneously in Sydney’s Performance Space, see the results of this Sweeneys project on-screen in PICAs West End Gallery.
