Discover new pages and video interviews of PIPA 2022 participating artists

After being nominated for PIPA Prize, each artist is entitled to pages on the Prize’s Portuguese and English websites. These pages together compose a catalog of Brazilian contemporary art, for they are filled with images of works, videos, texts, CVs and other content the participants wish to send. The Prize team encourages the artists to keep their pages up to date and is always available to receive material. In addition, PIPA participants are also invited to record a video interview with Do Rio Filmes, thus having another space to share their works and their creative processes.

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.

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.

In this post, we present a few of the 61 participants of PIPA 2022. Click on their names to access their pages and to know more about their production:

Alice Quaresma was born in Brazil in 1985 and currently lives in New York. She has been experimenting with materials that allow her photographs to be sensorial and playful, pushing the boundaries of photography as a descriptive medium. Using pictures from her personal photo archive, she reflects on identity and imagination, stimulating the ludic in her images. Quaresma has participated in exhibitions in institutions around the world, such as Patrick Heide Contemporary Art (London), Sobering Galerie (Paris), Felix Frachon Gallery (Brussels), Sotheby’s Institute (New York), Centro de Cultura Laura Alvim (Rio de Janeiro), Cincinnati Contemporary Arts Center, and A.I.R Gallery (Brooklyn).

Andrew Silva is a visual artist and researcher. Graduated in Design, he began to develop his work in painting in a self-taught way. Born and raised in Conjuntão, a housing complex located in Bangu, west zone of Rio. He found in the density of this architectural geometry a symbolic substrate for the articulation of his painting. His work materializes by tensing the support through the use of images of different origins and granting them an installation and sculptural aspect.

Graduated in Fashion Design from Unesa in 2017. In 2015 and 2016, he participated in Casa geração vidigal, a fashion school for young people from Rio de Janeiro’s peripheries. In 2018, he was selected for the Orbit residency at Centro-Br (Brazilian Center for Studies in Clothing Design). In 2020, he joined Atelier Livre Xico Stockinger in Porto Alegre. In 2021, he was part of the Costa Doce Contemporary Art Show, Rio Grande do Sul. In 2022, he held his first solo exhibition “Ramal Apoteose” at Athena Gallery in Rio de Janeiro and participated in several group exhibitions, “Fissura” at Portas Vilaseca, “Assembleia” at Refresco Gallery and “Id” at Z42, all of which are galleries in Rio de Janeiro.

Myopic visual artist, transvestigenere, SHE/HER, who researches hybridism in its various languages (video, object, drawing, painting, performance) with emphasis on clippings of childhood memories and spontaneous fabrications. She draws every day. Efe Godoy at the age of 7 received a hand reading that opened her eyes to realize that she would have an ongoing artistic trajectory, since then she knew she would draw her way out of her native Sete Lagoas/MG. Today she lives and works in Belo Horizonte. She attended the Guignard School UEMG and continues her education through residencies in Brazil and abroad. Some of these transformative experiences took place in recent years, such as Bolsa Pampulha 2015/2016, the artist residency at EAC-Montevideo_UY in 2018, residency Adelina _SP, 2018, and recently: HEMIENCUENTRO _ INSTITUTO HEMISPHERIC NY UNIVERSITY in Mexico City, 2019, and VERBO performance art show at Galeria Vermelho – SP. She won a Mabri award – small formats 2021 – and a SARP AWARD – ribeirão preto art salon in 2020. In a simple, she way tries to interfere in people’s lives through social networks with the reverberation of the word affection, @efegodoy.

He understands his practice from displacements in the paths that lead images to the condition of promise. The artist elaborates series that explore the notion of extravagance, in the literal sense of the term, as if each work sought to destabilize the common sense of the practice with which he maintains a close relationship, that is, that part of image production related to seduction and idealization.

Taygoara Schiavinoto is a visual artist and educator, born in the city of Ribeirão Preto. Graduated in Visual Arts, in Sculpture, from the University of São Paulo – USP. His research looks at the symbolic instruments of Candomblé from the concepts of Bacongos and Yoruba culture, as well as Brazilian popular culture and non-traditional manifestations of art. From the perspective of Afro-Brazilian artistic production, it seeks to remember “forgotten” symbols alongside recognized figures in a form of celebration, whose result is the creation of new symbols, developing a cycle of remembrance and invention.
