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.

Robert Turpin

A recent graduate from ECU, Robert Turpin is a committed and relentless painter, constantly experimenting with materials, processes and imagery. Splicing together references from sci-fi and album covers, Turpin’s visual vocabulary channels pop culture, creating unique otherworldly landscapes. He is interested in using the residency to make a totally new body of eclectic paintings.
