The public has chosen. Find out who, among this year’s four PIPA Prize finalists – Clara Ianni, Gustavo Speridião, Luiza Baldan and Paulo Nazareth –, was declared the winner of the PIPA Popular Vote Exhibition 2016. The award, which depends entirely on the visitors of the PIPA Prize Exhibition on view at MAM-Rio, consists on an amount of R$24,000. This is not, however, the end of the race for the finalists: they are still on the run for the main PIPA Prize 2016, which will be announced exclusively on our website next Wednesday, November 9th.
What goes through the artist’s head while making an artwork? Is there a logic behind it, or is all artistic production entirely dependent on inspiration? Is an intellectual discourse necessary in order for a work of art to sustain itself? Do artworks need to be intelligible? Those were some of the questions answered by Luiz Camillo Osorio, Curator and Board Member of PIPA Institute, Cadu, PIPA Prize 2013 winner, and Martha Pires Ferreira, Visual Arts Coordinator at Casa das Palmeiras, for this exclusive PIPA Prize video.
(Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) This Sunday, November 6th, the art educators Jean D. Soares and Virginia Mota invite Fernando Galrito to the workshop “Animation Garden”. There, the participants will gather inspiration from the garden of the Museum of Modern Art (MAM-Rio) in order to create a “work of art which is animated…or an animation film”. The workshop will be held in the Living Area of the PIPA Prize Finalist’s Exhibition at MAM-Rio.
(London, UK) Vibrant and seductive floor- and wall-based sculptural works feature in this exhibition, the artist’s first at Victoria Miro Mayfair. Displaying a characteristically dynamic approach to form, these new works expand upon the Rio de Janeiro-based artist’s methods of rope weaving and straw braiding, in which pre-existing and found elements such as branches, twigs, seed pods, playful ceramic forms and paint brushes merge with the organic forms of the sculptures.
