PICA FRINGE PROGRAM Care, confession and community

Each year as part of FRINGE WORLD, PICA presents a bespoke program for the adventurous. In 2020, from January 17 to February 7, PICA welcomes four Western Australian artists with four 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 will celebrate 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. Or 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, these are four personal journeys at PICA this Fringe season.

PICA’s FRINGE WORLD 2020 program runs January 17 to February 7 at the Perth Institute of Contemporary Arts. Tickets available HERE.
