PICA: Love in Bright Landscapes

Love in Bright Landscapes explores the possibilities of contemporary art in contributing to these ongoing stories of identity, purpose, presence and place in the cities of Perth and Los Angeles.

  • Dates:Jul 27 - Oct 10
  • Venue:PICA Galleries


  • Hosted By:PICA
  • Art Exhibitions:Other Visual Arts
  • Produced By:PICA: Perth Institute of Contemporary Art
  • Event Venue:PICA


Love in Bright Landscapes takes its title from the name of a 1986 album by former, now cult, Perth band The Triffids – a group that has contributed much to the city’s narrative of wide open roads, treeless plains and the relentless heat of a long, dry Perth summer. But this evocation of love – and with it the possibilities and pitfalls of infatuation and romanticisation – in a landscape stretched out beneath an expansive bright sky, might equally apply to an understanding of Los Angeles: a city that itself has long been steeped in lore and myth. As such, this exhibition considers Perth and Los Angeles as comparative case studies, bringing together a selection of artworks made in reference to the characters, qualities and topographies of the two west coast cities. Despite their inherent differences – in industry, scale, population, politics, public perception and self-image – and the distinct independent cultures of each city, Perth and Los Angeles share several commonalties: from indigenous and colonial histories to natural resource booms, sprawling suburbia, car culture, blazing sunsets and seamy underbellies.

The band, who announced in late 2018 that Kevin Simm (winner of ‘The Voice UK’ and former member of Liberty X) had joined original members Graeme Clark, Neil Mitchell and Tommy Cunningham as lead vocalist, will be performing their most iconic hits, including ‘Love is all around’, the best-selling single in Australia of 1994, along with ‘Sweet Surrender’, Goodnight Girl’, ‘Julia Says’ and many more. 

“It’s been a long time since we’ve been to Australia and New Zealand! We loved our numerous trips there in the past and can’t wait to see everyone again” Graeme Clark said.

Neil Mitchell said, “It’ll have been twenty-five years since we last played there so this is a well overdue return!”

“Australia and New Zealand are incredible countries so I’m really excited to get there and play for Wet Wet Wet’s ‘down under’ fans!” Kevin Simm said.

Tommy Cunningham said “We’re really looking forward to revisiting all the cities we’ve been to before and catching up with old friends, whilst at the same time getting to see some new places and making new friends.”

Since the release of their first single, ‘Wishing I Was Lucky,’ in 1987 the band has grown to become one of the most successful in British pop history. In their career to date they have sold over 15 million singles and albums, featured in the charts for an impressive 500 weeks, and had 27 official UK Top 40 hit singles. Wet Wet Wet has played to more than 4 million people in dozens of countries worldwide; and each tour has cemented their reputation as being one of the best live acts to come out of the UK.

Love will be all around, at each venue of this unmissable tour!
