The participating artists were nominated by the Nominating Committee, composed of art professionals from all over Brazil, in which each member can send up to three names. From the 66 artists nominated for PIPA Prize 2022, 61 are participating in this edition, 49 of which are first-timers.
The participating artists are those who, after being nominated, met the requests of the PIPA Prize Coordination within the informed deadlines, thus confirming and validating their interest in composing this edition. They are, therefore, qualified to compete for PIPA Prize and PIPA Online.
Like the previous year, the Prize decided to focus on a more recent production, nominating artists who must have had their first solo or group exhibition no longer than 15 years ago. The Prize’s goal is to be a boost for artists at the beginning of their career who develop distinguished works.
- PIPA Prize – The PIPA Prize Board will choose four artists from the nominees, among those who confirm their participation in PIPA Prize 2022. These four Awarded Artists will participate in an exhibition at Paço Imperial, in Rio de Janeiro, between September and October this year, and in a virtual exhibition on the Prize’s websites and social media, producing new content for the event. Each one will receive a donation of R$20,000.
- PIPA Online – It happens in two rounds and each of the two most voted artists receives a donation of R$5,000. This year’s edition is scheduled to happen between July and August.
Over the next few weeks, we will post the updated pages of the artists who have already been nominated in previous years and the new pages of the artists who were nominated for the first time. Stay tuned and keep up with the news!
