“Zeca, the king of scrap” | Watch PIPA 2015’s new special video

PIPA’ special videos series was created in 2011 to stimulate and contribute with the debate and reflexion about art. The idea arose during the early years of the Prize, from themes that were raised during interviews with PIPA Nominated Artists since 2010. We release today “Zeca, the king of scrap”, and we meet the owner of a scrap heap in Vigário Geral, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, who receive visits from artists searching for raw materials.


Opening | “Páginas Vermelhas”, solo exhibition by Éder Oliveira

(São Paulo, Brazil) The exhibition has photos and pictures mostly of common people, but with something different: the artist paints anonymous people’s faces who were published as suspects in police pages of Belém’s newspapers, where he lives. “My art relates a lot with what always happens in Brazil, which is the subjugation of a class,particularly the working class and the poorer people”, affirms the artist.


Daniel de Paula presents works giving continuity to project at Galeria Leme

(São Paulo, Brazil) Daniel de Paula’s project articulates these different scales in an installation that brings together numerous rock core samples resulting from geotechnical surveys, which are perforation processes for the exploration and recognition of the subsoil, used in civil engineering to get the necessary geological information required for dimensioning and defining the type of foundations which will be the basis for a construction.

Last days | Exhibition “Ficções” dives into contemporary artistic narratives

(Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) The exhibition highlights the plurality of Brazilian art. As well as betting on the strength of Rio artists, the show brings other cities close together. “Narrative resources such as simile are very important when it comes to Brazilian art. This is an exhibition formed by a crossing between contemporary art and literature, film, theatre and music, among other languages. At no point we are illustrating a book of stories”, says curator Daniela Name.
