Spanning sculpture, painting, sound, film, media, happenings, and more, PICA’s Visual Art program reflects the multi-faceted practices of our artists.


From dance to theater to music and beyond, PICA supports interdisciplinary new performance by artists exploring urgent cultural ideas and issues.

The Institute provides context and sparks dialogue around the projects we present, through workshops, lectures, salons, and gallery tours.
