PIPA Online 2017, which awards R$10,000 and R$5,000 to, respectively, the first and second most voted artists by the public on our websites, starts in two weeks, on July 16th. To help you prepare for the voting, we have gathered in a single post all of the interviews with the nominated artists released until now. In total, we have published 32 videos on our YouTube channel, a number which is yet to grow until the start date of the voting’s first round. Produced exclusively by Do Rio Filmes for the Prize, they uncover the creative process behind the work of many of the artists who participate in the award this year.
PIPA Prize’s artist pages feature information on each of the participant’s trajectory, critical essays, as well as artwork images and videos. In this post, we present the pages of yet another eight of the 56 artists nominated for this edition of the Prize. They are: Mario Bands, Orlando da Rosa Farya, Paloma Bosquê, Pedro França, Raïssa de Goés, Sofia Borges, Tony Camargo and Ulysses Bôscolo.

(New York, USA) Nominated for PIPA Prize for the third time this year, Ana Mazzei opened the solo show “Ghost Studies” at Almine Rech Gallery this week. The exhibition presents new paintings on linen that are both appealing and crude because of its violent application of color on the delicate fabric. She is also showing sculptures that play with dimensions and the perception of the minuscule and the gigantic.
