Save the date: PIPA Prize Finalists’ Exhibition 2017 opens at the Museum of Modern Art of Rio de Janeiro (MAM-Rio) in two weeks from now, on September 23rd. The exhibition presents to the audience a glimpse of the work of the four PIPA Prize 2017 finalists, Antonio Obá, Bárbara Wagner, Carla Guagliardi and Éder Oliveira.
(Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) “Sorria!”, group show that discusses contemporary painting from the point of view of 11 artists, reaches its end this Saturday, at Jacaranda, in Villa Aymoré. There is no reason for tears, however: the end of exhibition is also the occasion of an open talk with eight of the participating artists, followed by the exhibition of a mini-documentary about artists Marcos Chaves and Alice Miceli, PIPA Prize 2014 Winner.
(Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) A technique often overlooked when juxtaposed with more up-to-date art practices, painting is the focus of “Sorria!”, group show that opens this Saturday at Jacaranda, in Villa Aymoré. Featuring works by 11 young carioca painters, including PIPA Prize nominees Gustavo Speridião and Daniel Lannes, the exhibition displays a panorama of the possibilities of painting today. Further on, also take place during the opening a documentary screening, an open talk, a book release and the launching of Jacaranda magazine #4.
Second edition of “South-South” investigates the afterlife of the political revolution in the Global South
(Cape Town, South Africa) Following a series initiated in 2015, with “The Poetry in Between: South-South”, Goodman Gallery presents this weekend the exhibition “South-South: Let me begin again”, which unites artists from the Global South—places such as Cuba, Brazil, South Africa and others. Featuring artworks by 21 artists, including PIPA Prize 2016 winner Paulo Nazareth, the exhibition investigates how the progressive ideologies being embraced in these countries in the 1980s/1990s have unfolded or collapsed.
Here, we write a retrospective piece on what happened in the seventh edition of PIPA Prize. Nominees, finalists, the exhibition at MAM-Rio and the winners of the three categories of the Prize and much more were all remembered. For those who have missed any of the PIPA Prize events, this is your place; for those who were simply attacked by an end-of-the-year-nostalgia, too. And get ready: the eight edition of PIPA Prize is just around the corner.
In this post, we selected some of the most interesting texts published on our online platform in 2016. Amongst interviews led by the Curator of PIPA Institute Luiz Camillo Osorio, critical essays and reflections on the current state of the arts, one conviction remains: that PIPA Prize has undoubtedly become the window into Brazilian contemporary art it has always aimed to be. May 2017 bring even more people closer to this window.
What better way to become a “window into Brazilian contemporary art” than through the most literal window of all arts, the audiovisual? It was bearing that in mind that PIPA Prize established, since its creation, a partnership with production house Matrioska Filmes. These exclusive videos aim to discuss the most pressing issues of contemporary art today. Here, you can find a selection of the best 2016 PIPA Prize videos—to watch over and over again.
The time has come: today we announce the grand winner of this edition of PIPA Prize. Chosen by the Award Jury amongst the four finalists – Clara Ianni, Gustavo Speridião, Luiza Baldan and Paulo Nazareth – the winner of the main category of the Prize is awarded R$130,000, part of which is destined to finance a three months residency programme at Residency Unlimited, in New York, USA.

(Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) “They are four artists with very assertive, diverse and politically-charged poetics. In a country, and a world, convulsed by political crises and civilizing challenges, commitment and involvement with the current situation is the least we can expect from art”, comments Luiz Camillo Osorio, Curator of PIPA Institute. On Wednesday, November 9th we will announce the winner of PIPA Prize 2016. The winner, chosen by the Award Jury, is competing for R$130,000, including a participation in an international artistic residency programme in New York.
