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.

Nine of Western Australia’s most interesting emerging artists have radically engaged with issues of peer influence and authorship through a unique methodology over seven months. Exhibition curator Sarah Rowbottam invited the artists to make new artworks over four demanding six week cycles, whereby each artist handed over a work to another artist in the group who in-turn made a new piece in response.
The results of this generative project of visual chinese whispers are 29 individual yet related artworks ranging from interactive swinging structures and perpetual motion machines, to beautifully filmed videos, photographs and full-room installations.
The exhibition is accompanied by a groundbreaking 192 page publication edited by Matthew Giles with contributions by eight local writers.
