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.

We are open today from 10am to 5pm. Our exhibitions are always free.

Sarah Nelson (WA)

Sarah Nelson’s Quick Response residency will support her continued development of Into the Fog, a multidisciplinary performance integrating unconventional masks, puppetry, illusion and interactive design. Evolving the everyday into the hyperreal, Into the Fog is inspired by Nelson’s account of living in prolonged isolation with Long Covid and her subsequent development of FND.
