PIPA Prize 2021 Nominees

In order to participate in PIPA Prize, the artist must be nominated at least once by a member of this year’s Nominating Committee

This year the Prize decided to focus on more recent production, so the Nominated Artists must have had their first solo or group exhibition no longer than 10 years ago. The Prize’s goal is to be a boost for artists at the beginning of their career, with a distinguished work.

Each of the 23 members of the PIPA 2021 Nominating Committee nominated up to three artists. In total, 67 artists were nominated, 58 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 2021 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.

PIPA Prize 2021 Categories

  • PIPA Prize – The PIPA Prize Board will choose five artists from the nominees, amongst those who confirm their participation in PIPA Prize 2021. These five Selected Artists will participate in a virtual exhibition with new features on the Prize’s websites and social media, producing new content for the event. The idea is for the Selected Artists to show their artworks, without establishing a competition between the five of them. Each one will receive a donation of R$10,000.
  • PIPA Online – It happens in two rounds and each of the two most voted artists receives a donation of R$5.000.
