“The Spectacles, the absurd and helplessness in contemporary art” – read the critical text by Luiz Camillo Osorio

Luiz Camillo Osorio the curator of the PIPA Institute, PIPA’s founder and Board Member writes: “A risk of absurdity always attends the willingness to surrender oneself to the spell of any mere object: the dirtied swatch of cloth that is a painting, for example. It’s a game, whatever else it is, which makes sense only with knowledge of the rules and customs that are in play.”
