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.

‘How far away are you?’ ‘Can you move that?’ ‘What’s your ETA?’ ‘How’s it goin?’ Across 40 channels of crackling static, clipped and fragmented exchanges of despatch information and never-quite-private but familiar conversations are narrowcast to who ever is listening. Two-way radios are a way of life for many regional communities and industries including families on busy farms, truckies and city couriers. At PICA, WA Wheatbelt artist Roderick Sprigg will explore the noise of familiarity, protocol and business, of lives mediated and transmitted via two-way radio.
