Last week to visit ‘PIPA Prize 2023 Exhibition: Glicéria Tupinambá, Helô Sanvoy, Iagor Peres and Luana Vitra’ and ‘PIPA Institute: Recent Acquisitions’

(Rio de Janeiro, Brazil)

On the 14th edition of the Prize, we have the pleasure of announcing the Awarded Artists of PIPA 2023: Glicéria TupinambáHelô SanvoyIagor Peres and Luana Vitra. Among this year’s 73 nominated artists, artists with a career no longer than 15 years, these four were chosen by PIPA’s Board for having works that are forceful and that represent the plurality of poetics and languages ​​developed in Brazil. As a part of the prize, each artist receives a donation of R$20k and celebrates the decision with the exhibition at Paço Imperial, from September 9 to November 12.

Since 2020, the Prize’s exhibition does not have a competitive aspect. This show is, also, a celebration of the choosing of these four artists as this edition’s awardees. Thus, the four of them share Terreiro’s space with juxtaposed artworks, positioned in a way that highlights the possible permeabilities and enhancing their power as a set. Without a rigid expography, they create the space together in a free and fluid way – the exhibition is written by many hands.

As stated by Luiz Camillo Osorio, curator of the PIPA Institute, “The four awarded artists make explicit the plastic strength extracted from dissident bodies and their daily struggles. More than just the conquest of visibility, they fill in the gaps with meaning. Symptomatically, the presence of dance, the body and performance permeates the four poetics”.
