Perth Institute of Contemporary Arts

Entertainment Venues Galleries, Museums and Collections

Experience the best that the Australian and international visual, performance and interdisciplinary arts scene has to offer at the Perth Institute of Contemporary Arts (PICA), a hotbed for groundbreaking artists.

Located on James Street Mall in the vibrant cultural melting pot of Northbridge, the iconic heritage PICA building is at the heart of the Perth Cultural Centre, just five minutes’ walk from Perth train station and bus terminal.

More than just an arts and cultural venue for established artists and performers, PICA is an incubator of new talent, with a year-round program of exhibitions and theatre, dance and interdisciplinary productions.

Peruse the latest exhibition in one of Australia’s largest gallery spaces, or catch a provocative play or avant garde concert. Time your visit to coincide with Perth’s summer festival season (Fringe World, January to February, and Perth International Arts Festival, February to March), and you’ll be treated to a veritable feast of shows.

The uber cool PICA Bar, with its alfresco area right in the heart of Perth’s cultural hub, is a top dining, meeting and people-watching spot. You also have a great view of the big outdoor screen here, where you can watch the latest contemporary arts program.
