  • Watch the video “Home is where the Art is: Stories about Artistic Residencies”

    Watch the release of another PIPA special video, part of a series that deepens the topics that emerge over the course of four years of nominated artists’ interviews. In this video, a compilation made with pieces of statements collected between 2010 and 2013 address artistic residencies. Artists tell how their experiences with residency programmes influenced their thinking and working processes. Catalina Lozano – Gasworks coordinator in 2010 – gives a perspective from the other side of the story, of what she believes a residency should be for an artist. Tatiana Blass describes through Skype, directly from London, the period she participated in Gasworks’ programme.

    (Paris, France) Patrícia Osses opens her first solo exhibition in the French capital this Saturday, with “L’autre ciel” ["The other sky"]. The recent works which will be shown were produced in a Buenos Aires inspired by writer Jorge Luis Borges, a result of the time the artist spent visiting literary spaces – such as the National Library of Argentina or a second hand bookstore, and generally experiencing the city in itself.

  • Exhibition with Fabio Morais and Jonathas de Andrade in the II Lima Photography Biennial

    (Lima, Peru) Last Wednesday was the opening of the II Lima Photography Biennial, where artists Fabio Morais, Jonathas de Andrade and Rafael Assef, three representatives of the current Brazilian photographic scene, are in the show “Brasil, voces en la multitud” ["Brazil, you in the crowd"], curated by Denise Gadelha and Jorge Villacorta. De Andrade presents “4000 disparos” ["4000 shots'], where the artist transforms takes of passersby heads into a progression of unknown people meaning to articulate a notion of social structure. Morais addresses the comunication potential in an image according to the context it is inserted in or according to its interpreting stages.

  • On view | “The Century” and “One Way Street” videos by Cinthia Marcelle and Tiago Mata Machado

    (São Paulo, Brazil) The two films made by artist Cinthia Marcelle and filmmaker Tiago Mata Machado, are on view. A result of the association between the two, “The Century” was recently screened at the Istanbul Biennial, in 2013. “One Way Street”, made in 2013, premiered worldwide in the Rotterdam cinema festival. Both videos point out the constant conflict between politics and society.

  • Opening | “Deságua” by Celina Portella

    (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) In this solo exhibition, Celina Portella presents three situations in videos and photographs, made in 2013 and 2014. In fixed frames, the artist portrays Fernanda Monteiro, Flavia Costa and Thiago Sancho in inconsistent actions, either redundant or contradictory.

  • Group show “Giro” features Mariana Manhães, Gisela Motta & Leandro Lima and Sara Ramo

    (Porto Alegre, Brazil) In 2010, “Giro” ["Spin'] was born, an exhibition project consisting of artworks made by contemporary artists from different Brazilian regions who mostly use video as medium. The spin allows us to experience a unique way of seeing, partly linked to the persistent illusion that we are at the centre of all events. The spin invites for a reflection on what repeats ceaselessly and, by doing that, is constantly changing: an action, a loop image, a feeling or thought.
