(Cologne, Germany) Celebrating its 20th birthday this year, Skupturenpark Köln opens its ninth “KölnSkulptur” this Sunday. Named “La Fin de Babylone”, the exhibition features new, site-specific works by eight international artists, two of them Brazilian: PIPA Prize 2016 nominee Pedro Wirz and Solange Pessoa.
PIPA Prize was created to promote and support Brazilian contemporary art, a mission that has been dutifully followed over the last seven years by awarding artists and promoting their work through our websites and social media. Lately, however, we have seen this lively, diverse artistic scene attacked by a wave of moralist radicals who are trying to bring back the censorship era. We felt the need to make a statement.
