Watch the video “Home is where the Art is: Stories about Artistic Residencies”

Watch the release of another PIPA special video, part of a series created to stimulate and contribute to discussions and reflections on art.

In “Home is where the Art is: Stories about Artistic Residencies”, pieces of statements collected between 2010 and 2013 address artistic residency. Artists tell how their experiences with residency programmes influenced their thinking and working processes. Catalina Lozano – Gasworks coordinator in 2010 – gives a perspective from the other side of the story, of what she believes a residency should be for an artist. Tatiana Blass describes through Skype, directly from London, the period she participated in Gasworks’ programme.

Watch the video:

Still on artistic residencies, a conversation between Luiz Camillo Osorio and Rowan Geddis (Gasworks coordinator) was recorded in 2011, at MAM-Rio. Watch “PIPA 2011: Awards and residencies in debate”:

Special videos

This series was created in December 2011 and has, as one of its goals, the stimulation of discussion and reflection on different points of art as it happens nowadays.

Always made by Matrioska Films, the series of special videos brings stories related to art, whose themes emerge from video-interviews with the nominated artists, over the course of four years, such as “Inabilsmo”.

The series also addresses themes that come up from conversations between the Prize and Matrioska teams, like in “The bar owner”, “Charles’ cup of tea” and the most recent Interview with Nelson Leirner.

Lauching of children books “A Família Mobília” and “Superzeróis”

(São Paulo, Brazil)

The artists Tatiana Blass e Marcelo Cipis release this Saturday the books “A Família Mobília” (The Furniture Family) and “Superzeróis” (Superzeros), respectively, through publishing house Cosac Naify, at Martins Fontes bookshop. There will also be a children workshop and autograph session with the authors.

About “Superzeróis”:
Marcelo Cipis invented a league of clumsy superheros. They were not nicknamed “Superzeros” by chance. In this interactive book, each card contains a character acting like a hero, but on the back we see they are not as invincible as they look… As well as reading the cards in their order, readers can fit them in any order, creating different stories – including tridimensional versions.

About “A Família Mobília”:
In her first book, artist Tatiana Blass imagined a very original family, made of furnitures of a house where nothing stays in place. Playing with furniture immobility, Tatiana also refers to the objects’ use: Telma TV always needs to be the centre of attention, Teodoro Carpet is always feeling down, Sergio Sofa spends the whole day napping… The colourful illustrations present patterns for each object, enhancing the messy aspect. The boom comes in an envelope with two little windows – the house of Furniture Family.

Launching of books “A Família Mobília” and “Superzeróis”, with children workshop and autograph session with authors Tatiana Blass and Marcelo Cipis

Last days | “Cruzamentos: Contemporary Art in Brazil”

(Columbus, USA)

The Wexner Center for the Arts presents the exhibition “Cruzamentos: Contemporary Art in Brazil”.

The Portuguese word cruzamentos translates literally as “crossroads” or ‘”intersections,” but in Brazil it’s also a metaphor for the diverse cultural heritage that makes the country so distinct. In that spirit, this exhibition explores the work of 35 dynamic Brazilian artists—many of whom have never been widely exhibited in the US—whose practices and influences are as varied as the social, racial, and geographical composition of the country itself. The exhibition will include new and site-specific works, several of which you’ll encounter in unexpected places in and around the center.

Although a handful of postwar Brazilian artists have received recognition in North America (including Hélio Oiticica and Ernesto Neto, whose work has been exhibited at the Wex), the astonishingly high level of artistic production throughout Brazil over recent decades remains significantly overlooked beyond its borders. Between the 2014 World Cup and 2016 Olympics, all eyes will be trained on this rapidly evolving country and its political and economic development. Cruzamentos offers a timely focus on Brazil’s vibrant culture and is one culmination of the Wexner Center’s multidisciplinary, four-year-long Via Brasil initiative.

Artists in the show: Adriana Varejão, Beatriz Milhazes, Cristiano Lenhardt, Erika VerzuttiGisele Camargo, Jac Leirner, Jonathas de Andrade ( PIPA 2011 Finalist), José Damasceno, Leda Catunda and Tatiana Blass ( PIPA 2011 winner).
