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.

WA Day Come out and Play Workshop

WA Day Come out and Play Workshop

As a part of the WA Day celebrations in the Perth Cultural Centre, PICA’s doors will once again be open for the only Monday of the year.

Families and the general public are welcome to drop-in between 10am to 4pm to join Hatched artist Leah Allen-Ankins in a free and fun art workshop.

Taking notes from her work featured in Hatched – Traces and Projections, join Leah as she creates a whole-room installation of folded geometric paper and cardboard forms.

Exploring ideas of placement, construction and deconstruction through simple paper and cardboard creations, participants will be encouraged to consider how their additions to the landscape developing across the walls of the Spark_Lab Education Studio could layer over and under the existing structure, and develop as a whole entity.

This durational, interactive installation will be documented via a time-lapse camera, showing the patterns of the works’ progression around the room.
