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.

Quick Response Residency

During his residency at PICA William Gammel will develop a new solo performance, I view me. Weaving together live video editing, projection, social media filters, AI, puppetry and autobiography, I view me will interrogate how we construct and reconstruct versions of ourselves online and off.
