10 November @ Perth Insitute of Contemporary Arts (PICA) ◆
51 James St, Perth Cultural Centre ◆

Join us for the opening night of ‘I don’t want to be there when it happens’ & ‘Remedial Works’. Get in early to enjoy some Pakistani treats and soothing chai. Beverages available for purchase from PICA Bar.

‘I don’t want to be there when it happens’ explores the fragile and complex socio-political relationship between India and Pakistan in the era of contemporary warfare, and investigates, in a broader sense, the psychology of trauma. This exhibition is organised in partnership with 4A Centre for Contemporary Asian Art and expanded on the occasion of its presentation at PICA.

‘Remedial Works’ is an exhibition that groups an international set of artists working together to understand the novel and specific materials of contemporary global societies, and how these materials and their embedded meanings can affect human bodies and relationships.

DATE | Friday 10 November
TIME | 6:30pm – 8:30pm
LOCATION | All PICA Galleries
