See who are the members of the Nominating Committee, responsible for choosing the artists that will run for this year’s edition of PIPA Prize. The Committee is composed by 26 professionals that act directly with Contemporary Art, such as artists, collectors, curators, professors, critics and gallerists, who can’t nominate artists commercially represented by their galleries. They have to consider the relevancy of the prize as a parameter when selecting their nominations and choose artists who have a recent trajectory, highlighted in the Art Circuit. PIPA’s coordination avoids any deliberate arbitrary decision for understanding that the results of the Committee’s nominations are more efficient and fair.
