Watch the exclusive video | “The Bar Owner”

On December 22, we released an exclusive video of PIPA’s series of special videos. Created in 2011, the series has, as one of its goals, the stimulation of discussion and reflection on different points of art as it happens nowadays. It was created to deepen themes that came along during three years of interviews with nominated artists. They are videos that explore subjects related to the contemporary art scene in Brazil and around the world. The video “The Bar Owner” shows an interview with Diógenes Paixão, an art collector who also owns a bar in Santa Teresa neighborhood. In a pleasant talk he tells about his life and the story of his collection.

Schedule from 04 – 10 January

Group exhibition gathers works by Brazilian artists in Poland

(Warsaw, Poland) The exhibition “Love and hate to Lygia Clark” presents young Brazilian artists who in their work refer to the classics of contemporary art from their country, primarily modernist visual artists and architects. The featured artists work in various media: sculpture, installation, relief, photography, film as well as creating conceptual narrative projects.

“A Sense of Place”, with Lucia Koch

(San Francisco, USA) “A Sense of Place” is an exploration of how photographs shape the perception of our environments. Together, the exhibited works shift in scale from room size installations to small, quiet photographs, transporting the viewer through a variety of locations, memories, and emotive experiences.

PIPA artists in group show “Dig the Future”

(Belo Horizonte, MG) The exhibition “Escavar o Futuro”, curated by Renata Marquez and Felipe Scovino, suggests a reflection about the artistic production of the decades of 1960 and 1970, a historical moment in which the space was considered raw material for art. André Komatsu, Cinthia Marcele, Paulo Nazareth, Pedro Motta and Vítor César participate in the show.

“Économie Domestique” | Ana Luiza Dias Batista and João Loureiro

(Paris, France) “Économie Domestique” is an exhibition by Ana Luiza Dias Batista and João Loureiro. Ana Luiza Dias Batista graduated in Fine Arts from the University of São Paulo. João Eduardo Loureiro has Masters degree in Visual Poetics by the School of Communications and Arts of the University of São Paulo – ECA/USP – and Major in Fine Arts by Armando Álvares Penteado Foundation – FAAP.

“Permission To Be Global/Prácticas Globales”

(Miami, USA) The exhibition features contemporary works by artists from across Latin America. Incorporating sculpture, painting, photography, video, installation and performance art from 1960 to the present, the show explores what it means “to be global,” when free and equal cultural exchange is still limited by the power dynamics of globalization.

Last days to visit “Tudo posso naquilo que me fortalece”

(Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) Brazilian artist Bruno Miguel presents a solo exhibition entitled “I can do all things through that which strengthens me”. “This idea, often associated with religion, contains a vast range of interpretations in the work of Bruno Miguel, ranging from the ironic to the sacred.”, Benjamin Moreh, curator.
