One of the main goes that led to the creation of PIPA, in 2010, was to establish a lasting partnership between Investidor Profissional Gestão de Recursos and the Museum of Modern Art in Rio de Janeiro.
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 and PIPA Online also donate a work to Instituto Investidor Profissional, producer of the award.
