Check out new pages of PIPA 2024 Participating Artists

In this fifteenth edition of PIPA Prize, there is a total of 62 Participating Artists – of which 48 were nominated for the first time – chosen by the Nominating Committee. As the last editions, the Prize is focused on a more recent production, being directed to artists who 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 careers who develop distinguished works.

An important moment of every edition takes place with the creation of pages for each Participating Artist on the Prize’s websites (in English and in Portuguese): all participating artists have their own page, with images of works, texts, videos, information about the trajectory, among other contents. These pages that are being created now, added to the existing ones, constitute a source for research on Brazilian contemporary art, and can be later updated with the submission of more material by the artists, thus always being up to date with the new moments of each one’s production.

In addition to this content, the pages also have a videointerview offered by PIPA and carried out by the Do Rio Filmes production company, a format that allows the artists to present their work to the public in a closer and more personal way. In addition to the individual video, this year we prepared a compilation with short answers from artists to some questions about the artistic universe: challenges, inspirations, and routine, among other issues that cross the artists’ creative process.
