As in the previous editions of IP Capital Partners Art Prize, the winner of the main award wins a prize of R$100,000 and part of this value (approximately 20%) is assigned for a participation of the artist in an International Artistic Residency Program, for the period of three months. From 2010 to 2012, the chosen program was at Gasworks, in London. From 2013 until now, winners started taking part in the Artistic Residency Program at Residency Unlimited, in New York. Cadu, PIPA 2013 winner, was the first winning artist of the prize to join RU, and soon, Alice Miceli, PIPA 2014 winner, will participate in the residency program. During her stay in New York, Alice Miceli will give three exclusive interviews, so we can follow up her experience in the city and the involvement in the program, as it happened with Cadu. The partnership between Residency Unlimited and PIPA Prize worked so well that it will stay for 2015. PIPA winner this year will join the program in 2016.

Now, returning recently from the United States, the artist gives us his last interview of the three video series, in which he reports on the experience he had at Residency Unlimited. In it, Cadu speaks about the exchange with artists of multiple nationalities that the residency period enabled. He also talks about the project “Wind Line”, which he created and that led to an exhibition in New York.
The artist, now preparing for a trip to the Atacama desert, says he still has not been able to analyse what happened in New York and he must be already prepared for the new trip. He would need a silencing process before going on another experience. “But then I remember a sentence by Bukowski, you will create no matter what, whether there is a cat meowing, a crying child or a leaking pipe. You have got to do things the way you can, not the way you want.”

(Estoril, Portugal) The first edition of the fair welcomes 35 galleries coming from nine different countries. Focusing on “Drawing”, in its widest sense, as the primary theme of Est Art Fair 2014, will emphasize it as a practice crossing over multiple art mediums, and constituting some of the most flexible artistic practices. The theme will also be developed by curatorial projects and proposed to all Galleries participating in this year’s edition.
As part of the winning prize for PIPA 2013, Cadu is now going through a three-month residency period at Residency Unlimited. We are keeping up with this residency through interviews made via Skype. There will be a total of three videos. In the first video, out on 16th May, the artist told of his first impressions in returning to New York after fourteen years, about how he deals with the fast pace of the city that never sleeps and reported on the residency space. Now Cadu shows for the camera the space occupied by Residency Unlimited, which is in a former church in Brooklyn, and says there are between 18 to 25 artists participating in the programme at the same time, enabling daily encounters with people from different parts of the world.
Cadu also speaks of the main project he is developing in New York: an equipment that draws wind conditions, made in a partnership with another Brazilian artists also living in the city.
