#InternationalWomen’sDay | 15 Brazilian female artists you should know

This week, the world celebrated International Women’s Day, a date that not only praises the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women, but also works as a call to action for accelerating gender parity. In honor of March 8th, hence, PIPA Prize selected works by 15 female artists who have gained recognition in the history of the Prize, be it by winning one of its three categories or by making it to the edition’s four finalists. Their artistic goals and projects couldn’t be more different, as well as the media they have chosen to work with. Together, however, they prove that a woman’s place is in museums, galleries, ateliers—or wherever she wants to be.

The artists are Renata Lucas (Winner 2010), Cinthia Marcelle (Finalist 2010), Ana Paula Oliveira (PIPA Online 2010), Tatiana Blass (Winner e PIPA Popular Vote Exhibition 2011), Berna Reale (PIPA Online 2012 e Finalist 2013), Camila Soato (PIPA Popular Vote Exhibition 2013), Alice Miceli (Winner 2014 and PIPA Popular Vote Exhibition), Virginia de Medeiros (Winner and Popular Vote Exhibition 2015), Marina Rheingantz (Finalist 2015), Leticia Ramos (Finalist 2015), Luciana Magno (PIPA Online 2015), Ana Ruas (PIPA Online Popular 2015), Luiza Baldan (Finalist 2016), Clara Ianni (Finalist 2016) and Arissana Pataxó (PIPA Online 2nd.
