New on PIPA Online 2014 | Main prize includes a Sacatar artist residency

The PIPA Online this year features changes to promote even more PIPA participating artists.
This year there will be 2 award categories in the PIPA Online.
The first will be called PIPA Online, and the winner will be chosen, by a Jury, among the five most voted in the second round. The winner of this category will receive R$10,000 in addition to a residency program at Sacatar Foundation, in Bahia, Brazil.
In the other award category entitled PIPA Popular Vote Online, wins the most voted in the second round of PIPA Online, who will receive R$5,000.
One goal of these changes is the improvement of PIPA websites, in partnership with artists, increasing domestic and international visibility. With this in mind, one of the parameters that the Jury will use to decide the winner of PIPA Online, will be the quality of the artist’s page on the Prize’ s websites (profile pages with more data and information).
As in previous years, the PIPA Online is open to all nominees of the current edition.
The vote of the 1st round of PIPA Online will begin on July 20th.
Learn more about the reasons for the creation of this new award category, the artist residency program of Sacatar Foundation and the new rules.

New nominated artists interviews | André Griffo and André Santangelo

Every PIPA 2014 nominated artist is invited to record an interview with exclusivity. The aim is to allow the public to know a bit more about each artist, their oeuvre, line of thought and work methodology. Each interviewee answers to a question proposed by a Nominated Committee member – organ in charge of nominating artists for the Prize.
In his interview, André Griffo answers to a question by Beatriz Milhazes: “How do you develop your working process? Do you try a dialogue or is it only discussion?”
As well as answering the question, Griffo shows objects in his studio and explains that some of them he acquired even without properly knowing how to use them in his work. The artist says he started his career through sculpture, then migrated to drawing and painting.
André Santangelo replies to the same question by Beatriz, explaining that there is a dialogue with language – both with painting and photography – but it is also a discussion, as “it is always a challenge, always like an exposed nerve”.
Watch the interviews.
