Artifício, PIPA Prize’s new podcast!

What is art? What is the function of art? Is art an object? Is it an idea? Does art have an owner? Are there limits for art? Is art always political? Always subjective? Always disruptive? Where does art live? In museums? In the streets? These and other questions will be debated in “Artifício – o podcast do PIPA”.

Artifício is a biweekly podcast. In one of each two monthly episodes, the PIPA Institute curator Luiz Camillo Osorio discusses his critical texts for the column at In the second program of the month, we talk to nominated artists, curators, collectors and also art researchers to discuss various visual arts topics.

In the first episode of the season ‘O que é arte?’, Luiz Camillo Osorio debates the most read text from his column in 2019: “Art, non-art and after art.” In the program, Camillo discusses the autonomy of the definitions given to what is currently classified as art – and by whom those denominations are made.

Luiz Camillo Osorio, in addition to being the PIPA Institute’s curator, is also the director of the Philosophy Department at PUC-Rio, in Rio de Janeiro. Between 2009 and 2015, Camillo was the curator at MAM-Rio and also of the Brazilian Pavilion at the 2015 Venice Biennale. He also served on the curatorial council at MAM-SP between 2005 and 2009 and signed art critic columns in newspapers such as O Globo (1998/2000 and 2003/2006) and Jornal do Brasil (2001), in addition to the Spanish magazine EXIT Express (2006/2007).

The podcast is developed and organized by Mariana Casagrande, Alexia Carpilovsky and Patricia Bello. Thaysa Paulo signs the design.
