Here, we write a retrospective piece on what happened in the seventh edition of PIPA Prize. Nominees, finalists, the exhibition at MAM-Rio and the winners of the three categories of the Prize and much more were all remembered. For those who have missed any of the PIPA Prize events, this is your place; for those who were simply attacked by an end-of-the-year-nostalgia, too. And get ready: the eight edition of PIPA Prize is just around the corner.
Many crucial events took place in 2016. This is also true when it comes to the year at PIPA Institute, which sponsors and coordinates PIPA Prize, that implemented a number of new strategies, initiatives and projects in these past months. Here, we remember some of the main highlights of the Institute this year.
In this post, we selected some of the most interesting texts published on our online platform in 2016. Amongst interviews led by the Curator of PIPA Institute Luiz Camillo Osorio, critical essays and reflections on the current state of the arts, one conviction remains: that PIPA Prize has undoubtedly become the window into Brazilian contemporary art it has always aimed to be. May 2017 bring even more people closer to this window.
What better way to become a “window into Brazilian contemporary art” than through the most literal window of all arts, the audiovisual? It was bearing that in mind that PIPA Prize established, since its creation, a partnership with production house Matrioska Filmes. These exclusive videos aim to discuss the most pressing issues of contemporary art today. Here, you can find a selection of the best 2016 PIPA Prize videos—to watch over and over again.
