PIPA Prize 2016 Winner

The time has come: today we announce the grand winner of PIPA Prize 2016. Chosen by the Award Jury amongst this year’s finalists – Clara Ianni, Gustavo Speridião, Luiza Baldan and Paulo Nazareth – the winner of the main category of the Prize is awarded R$130,000, part of which is destined to finance a three months residency programme at Residency Unlimited, in New York, USA. The prize cannot be split: only one artist amongst the finalists can be awarded with both the monetary donation and the artistic residency programme in 2017.

“They are four artists with very assertive, diverse and politically-charged poetics. In a country, and a world, convulsed by political crises and civilizing challenges, commitment and involvement with the current situation is the least we can expect from art”, comments Luiz Camillo Osorio, Curator of PIPA Institute.

The 2016 Award Jury, composed by Fernando Cocchiarale, Marisa Flórido, Júlia Rebouças, Milton Machado e Luiz Camillo Osorio, chose the winner during the Award Jury meeting at MAM-Rio. There, they visited the finalists’ exhibition at the Museum (on view until November 13th), analysed the artists’ portfolios and additional material (including exhibition catalogues, critical texts and exhibition pamphlets) and a letter, where each artist stated the importance of participating in an international artistic residency programme. The criteria used to base the Award Jury’s decision is a combination of artist’s portfolio, artworks showed at MAM-Rio’s exhibition, and how relevant the prize would be to the development of the winner’s career. The weight of the factors is at the members of the Award Jury sole discretion and can vary every year.
