Donated works

Every year, all four finalists of each edition donate an artwork to MAM-Rio. The donations are a way of contributing to the expansion of the museum’s collection, that already has a vast modern and contemporary art colletion.

The winners of each category this year (PIPA, PIPA Popular Vote Exhibition and PIPA Online) have also donated a work to PIPA Institute, the sponsor of the award.



Bárbara Wagner

PIPA Prize 2017 Winner donated to the Institute the film “Rise”, that started being developed at the artist’s residency at RU, in NY. The film was shot in Toronto, Canadá, in a recently opened metro staion, and investigates the musical universe of a community of young poets, rappers, and singers, that represent historically marginalised groups in the city.

Bárbara Wagner & Benjamin de Burca direct their gaze towards this new generation of artists whose poetics subvert the usual codes and signs of the American rap and hip-hop industry, such as the glorification of crime and objectification of the female body.


Éder Oliveira

Éder Oliveira, PIPA 2017 Popular Vote Winner, donated a painting from the series “Pixel”.  His work addresses issues such as cultural identity, especially the Amazonian man image and depiction.
