Check out the videos of the guided visit to the “Recent Acquisitions – PIPA Institute Collection” exhibition

Since September 9, the PIPA Prize and Recent Acquisitions of PIPA Institute exhibitions have been on display at Paço Imperial, in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. On the opening day, Luiz Camillo Osorio, curator of the PIPA Institute, and Lucrécia Vinhaes, founder and coordinator of the Institute and of PIPA Prize, conducted a guided visit to the exhibitions as part of the ArtRio VIP agenda.

This visit was turned into a video produced by Do Rio Filmes, which was divided in two parts that are available on our Youtube channel. Among other subjects approached in Part 1 are the mechanics of the Prize; the 2020 edition and the changes in 2021. In Part 2, Camillo talked about the works of the show, such as the flight of Daniel Beerstecher‘s caged birds; the photographs in close temporalities but distant spacialities by Yukie Hori and Inês Bonduki; the self-fictionality of Aleta Valente and the symbolic universe filled with ancestry of Ibã huni Kuin (Isaías Sales).

As Camillo stated,

“This clash of worlds that Brazil is, I think this is somehow the spirit of PIPA Institute”.
