Perth Institute of Contemporary Arts (PICA)



Housed in an iconic heritage building in the heart of Perth, Perth Institute of Contemporary Arts (PICA) is the place to experience the very best of local, Australian and international contemporary art in Western Australia.

Over its 30-year history, PICA has operated as both a producing and presenting organisation, delivering an annual program of changing exhibitions, seasons in contemporary dance, experimental theatre, new music and live art as well as a range of artist-in-residence programs.

PICA works with artists who are trail-blazers, exemplars, innovators and change-makers and acts as a site for challenging and timely conversations.

Its programs are carefully crafted, ensuring connections are forged not only between artists and audiences but across art forms, cultures and geographies. For artists, audiences and other communities it serves, PICA is a meeting place, a provocateur, a resource and most importantly a partner in the realisation of big and new ideas.
