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.

Trigger Warning

Trigger Warning

Part noise concert, part improvised performance, Trigger Warning is a fearless new sonic study into the mind and body of a woman who survived the horrors of war.
In a world defined by our obsession with security and terrorism, why do we turn a blind eye to the 65 million displaced people in the world who seek our protection?
Fuelled with unpredictability and raw energy, this live and loud encounter written and directed by Sally Richardson brings together renowned performer Hayley McElhinney (The Babadook, Sydney Theatre Company’s War of the Roses, Mother Courage and her Children) with composer and new music pioneer Dr Cat Hope, and Lighting Designer Joe Lui.
Trigger Warning is an experience that demands to be seen and heard.
