The Perth Institute of Contemporary Arts is one of Australia’s leading centres for the development and presentation of contemporary art. Housed in a large and striking heritage building in the heart of Perth, PICA is the city’s focal point for those wishing to experience the best of Australian and international visual, performance and interdisciplinary art.
PICA is both a producing and presenting institution that runs a year-round program of changing exhibitions, seasons in contemporary dance, theatre and performance, artistic residencies and interdisciplinary projects.
It boasts one of the largest and most breathtaking exhibition spaces in Australia and has become known for the leading role it plays in the presentation of significant new work.
The organisation’s mission is to create defining moments for artists, art forms and audiences. Its key aim is to promote, support and present contemporary arts and to stimulate discussion around the arts and broader cultural issues.
Not constrained by convention, PICA gives artists and audiences a glimpse of what is possible.
