Closer to PIPA

In April of 2021, we started a series of posts on PIPA Prize’s websites and social media called “Closer to PIPA: the artist speaks in the Institute collection”.

We select, periodically, an art piece that was acquired by the Institute and ask the artist to talk a little bit about the work: be it the creative process; the ideia behind the piece; how it connects with the artist’s production; or any other aspect the person would like to share. The goal is to bring the audience closer to the artist’s universe and to the “Displacement” collection from the PIPA Institute, which was established in 2010 to support, help document and promote the development of Brazilian contemporary art, and which has the Prize as one of its initiatives.

Here you can find all Closer to PIPA posts in order, from the most recent to the earlier ones.
