Paulo Nazareth (literally) walks to artistic residency in New York as part of his PIPA Prize 2016 award

(New York, USA) It took Paulo Nazareth six and a half months, almost 500 miles and losing 15 pounds to get to New York. The Herculean effort was part of the “Notícias de América” project, which, developed in 2011 by the winner of the last edition of PIPA Prize, consisted in going, by foot or hitchhiking, from Belo Horizonte all the way to the Big Apple. Six years later, the artist plans on crossing once more the Mexican border, this time to take part in a PIPA Prize-granted residency at Residency Unlimited, New York.

(Copenhagen, Denmark) PIPA Prize 2012 nominee Carla Zaccagnini and writer Santiago García Navarro’s new exhibition “I am also stepping on wet sand” explores the cultural life and legacy of Mar del Plata and Skagen in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

Sonia Gomes shares exhibition with iconic artist A. R. Penck in New York

(New York, USA) Mendes Wood’s space in New York Hic Svnt Dracones inaugurated earlier this week the exhibition “Sonia Gomes and A.R. Penck”, in which the two iconic artists explore mixed media with an emphasis on fabric-based works, aluminum foil and wood. While Penck explores new systems of spatial relationships in his color, Gomes’ – who was nominated for PIPA Prize on two occasions, 2012 and 2016 – approach is more poetic. Her sculptures reveal a new-found intimacy and sensuality through her artistic interventions with found and gifted objects.

Henrique Oliveira’s first show in New York opens today

(New York, USA) For his first show in New York, three-times PIPA Prize nominee Henrique Oliveira takes over the Van de Weghe Gallery with an ambitious installation. The work comprises a life-size tree constructed from scraps of plywood and bark which, appearing to grow horizontally from one interior wall, bisects the room. The organic structure objectifies the disequilibrium of nature and society, and its immersive environment invites the viewer not only to see, but to perceive with the body.
