(Rio de Janeiro, Brazil)
The PIPA Institute is pleased to announce a conversation with the artists Luana Vitra, Vitória Cribb and Vivian Caccuri – “The construction of the artist: development of poetics, encounter with materials”. The free event will take place on Tuesday, September 12th, from 4pm to 6pm, at Paço Imperial, in Rio de Janeiro.
The public will be able to hear the artists tell more about their trajectories, including the relationship and choice of materials they use, addressing their research and experience in the artistic field. These are three artists who explore different themes and media, such as relations with the virtual environment, the multiple ways of materializing sound, and the body in contact with minerals. Beyond that, the three artists are also part of the history of the PIPA Prize: Luana is one of the winners of this year’s edition, and is part of the exhibition that opens on Saturday, September 9, at Paço Imperial; Vitória was awarded in 2022, with an exhibition also at Paço Imperial; and Vivian was a finalist in the 2018 edition, when the PIPA exhibition was held at the Museum of Modern Art in Rio (MAM).
This event was organized and curated by members of the PIPA team – Lucrécia Vinhaes and Alexia Carpilovsky – in partnership with the artistic director Carla Oliveira. Lucrécia, founder of the PIPA Institute, will open the meeting by giving an overview of the Institute’s initiative and the creation of the Prize. The conversation will be mediated by Alexia and Carla, and at the end we will have a moment open to questions of the public to the artists. To celebrate, we will have Beck’s beers.
The conversation will be held in Portuguese.
