PIPA Online 2017 is coming to an end, finishing this Sunday, August 6th. After a week full of surprises, however, don’t expect the competition’s last moments to be without turbulence: our ballots show that every voting day has gathered approximately 1,000 new votes, summing up to 6,500 in total. Those amongst the 12 participating artists who have, respectively, the first and second highest number of votes, will receive prizes of R$10,000 and R$5,000. The winners’ announcement will take place next Monday, August 7th.
(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. The show is on view until January 2018 and presents past SFMOMA commissions by Brian Eno and Bill Fontana, as well as new and diverse work from over twenty contemporary artists, including the duo O Grivo, nominated for PIPA Prize 2010.
(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.
