(Vienna, Áustria) The starting point of “Welt Kompakt? Out of Brazil”, on view at Museumsquartier Wien, was a deep research into Latin America, an effort that included meetings with artists and activists such as PIPA Prize nominees Fabiana Faleiros, Jaime Laureano and Luiz Roque. The result is a group show that questions the relationship between contemporary art and the processes of cultural and media adoption.
(Vilnius, Lithuania) “An exhibition that has always been and will never end; an exhibition that changes its shape throughout space and time; an exhibition that exists both mentally and physically; an exhibition in search for an author”. That is how artist Raimundas Malašauskas defines “Unanimous Night”, group show on view at the Contemporary Art Center (CAC). Amongst the 25 artists who participate in the show, seven are PIPA Prize nominees.
(São Paulo, Brazil) In one room, the beauty. In the next, the foul. The apparently simplified division is one of the strategies of the group show “A Bela e a Fera” to investigate the concept of beauty in today’s time. Featuring eight artists – more than half of them nominated to PIPA Prize, Bruno Dunley, Erika Verzutti, Luiz Roque, Pedro França and Sofia Borges –, the exhibition that opened this week at Central Galeria was curated by painter and print-maker Leda Catunda.
