(Vienna, Áustria) The starting point of “Welt Kompakt? Out of Brazil”, on view at Museumsquartier Wien, was a deep research into Latin America, an effort that included meetings with artists and activists such as PIPA Prize nominees Fabiana Faleiros, Jaime Laureano and Luiz Roque. The result is a group show that questions the relationship between contemporary art and the processes of cultural and media adoption.
(Montevideo, Uruguay) Has the art of self-portraiture become banal after the explosion of the selfie? Without the intention of developing a moralizing thesis or reaching a factual conclusion, “Sobreexposición”, currently on view at the Espacio de Arte Contemporaneo, investigates the subject, proposing a dialogue by putting together works that reflect upon the excess of self-portraits and portraits today. Fifteen artists participate in the show, including PIPA Prize 2015 nominee Felipe Cama.

(São Francisco, US) “Soundtracks”, which opened at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA) last month, is the museum’s first large-scale group exhibition centered on the role of sound in contemporary art.

(Dallas, US) Curated by PIPA Prize 2010 Nominating Committee member Rodrigo Moura, “Doubles, dobros, pliegues, pares, twins, mitades” takes the literary figure of the doppelgäger to another realm: that of the visual arts. The exhibition, on view at The Warehouse Dallas since July, thus creates an inventory of situations in which otherness and duplication/repetition are manifested, from replicas, shadowing, and mirroring to logical-formal exercises that are expressed by the use of halves and doubles.
