Nominating Committee

(this page was last updated in August 2019)

Each edition, the PIPA Prize Board invites around 30 to 40 contemporary art professional to nominate artists with a recent trajectory, but with relevance in the Brazilian art circuit.  The invitees (generally, collectors, curators, professors, critics, artists, and gallerists) then form the edition’s Nominating Committee. It’s worth stressing that invited gallerists are not allowed to nominated artists represented by the organisations to which they belong. Some of this year’s members have already participated as artists or member of the Committee in previous editions of the Prize.

The PIPA Prize 2019 Nominating Committee is composed of 30 members, amongst Brazilian professionals from all over the country and foreigners, seven of which are members for the first time. Each of them nominates from one to three artists to run for the tenth edition of the award, keeping in mind the relevance of the Prize for the development and growth of the Brazilian artistic production.

PIPA Prize awards Brazilian contemporary visual artists with a recent trajectory, consistent production, whose works are already in evidence and known in the Brazilian contemporary art scene. PIPA’s Coordination avoids any deliberate arbitrary decision for understanding that the Committee’s nominations are more diverse, efficient and fair.
