Each of the 26 members of the PIPA 2020 Nominating Committee nominated up to three artists. In total, 72 artists were nominated, 53 of which were nominated for the first time this year. They are visual artists from all regions of Brazil (some are Brazilians living abroad) whose practice incorporates all media: from painting, photography, installation to video, performance and others.

Once they have sent materials, the artists who will participate in PIPA Prize 2020 will be featured with profile pages on our websites, adding to the other artists who have already participated in at least once the previous edition of the Prize. The profile pages include information on their careers, images of their works and video interviews. Furthermore, the artists are able to send information on exhibitions and events in which they participate, which are also featured on the events section of PIPA’s websites.

All nominees will be invited to record an exclusive interview, including artists who have participated in previous editions.
