The screenings, exclusive to our website, will be on view throughout the months of June to October. This first screening will feature the works “Hexa”, by Luiza Baldan and “Mas Continua a vida…” by Daniel Beerstecher.
Next Friday we will announce the names of PIPA 2016 finalists. Four artists were selected by the Board, out of this year’s participating artists, based on number of nominations, participation in previous editions of the Prize and in their trajectories. The finalists will participate in an exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art of Rio de Janeiro from 3rd September until 13rd November, and will be competing in two categories: PIPA and PIPA Popular Vote Exhibition.

“Under the Same Sun: Art from Latin America Today” highlights recently acquired works by more than 20 artists
(London, UK) With a focus on work made by artists born after 1968, in addition to several early pioneers who were active internationally in the 1960s and ’70s, the exhibition examines a diversity of creative responses by artists to complex, shared realities that have been influenced by colonial and modern histories, repressive governments, economic crises, and social inequality, as well as by concurrent periods of regional economic wealth, development, and progress.
