Perth Institute of Contemporary Arts

About Perth Institute Of Contemporary Arts

Each year as part of FRINGE WORLD, PICA presents a bespoke program for “the adventurous”. In 2020, PICA welcomes 4 West Australian artists with 4 brand new works across a colourful spectrum ranging from the gentle to the outrageous.

Opening up its doors as a place for artists, audiences and communities, PICA celebrates forms of care, confession and community as it transforms into a queer party, a therapeutic workshop, a night club, and a live lipstick apothecary.

• Share a queer kiss at Janet Carter’s Transmission

• Make a personalised set of sign cards at Jen Jamieson’s "This is not personal"

• Hear non-binary stories of confession at Daley King’s "Lipstuck"

• Strut into feminist truth-telling at Jacinta Larcombe’s "Slutdrop"

In each work, artists invite audiences to take a personal journey that has been carefully crafted with them in mind to share stories, knowledge and experiences. Under a safe and inclusive banner, PICA welcomes freedom of expression as these artists explore identity and multiplicities of gender and sexuality.

Wrapped as a love letter to ourselves, each other and our communities, don’t miss out on these 4 personal journeys at PICA this Fringe season.


Located at 51 James Street, Northbridge in the heart of the Perth Cultural Centre.
