One of the main objectives that led to the creation of PIPA, in 2010, was to support the Museum of Modern Art in Rio de Janeiro (MAM- Rio).
In this regard it was decided that, in order to contribute to the expansion of the museum’s collection, with works of contemporary Brazilian artists, the four finalists of each edition of PIPA would donate an artwork to MAM- Rio.
The winners of each category (PIPA, PIPA Popular Vote Exhibition, PIPA Online and PIPA Online Popular Vote) also donate a work to Instituto IP, sponsor of the award.
