Support, help document and promote the development of Brazilian Contemporary Art and Artists. Our slogan is “The Window for Brazilian Contemporary Art”.
The Institute was established in 2010 with three main objectives:
It was co-founded by IP Global Capital Partners and IP Capital Partners Asset Management, two asset management companies co-founded by Roberto Vinhaes, Lucrecia Vinhaes, Christiano Fonseca Filho and Christiano Fonseca.
In 2015, in a restructuring of the group, Roberto Vinhaes and Lucrecia Vinhaes took control of IP Global Capital Partners (Brazil and United Kingdom), while Christiano Fonseca Filho assumed control of IP, both preserving a minority stake.
In the same restructuring, IP Global was renamed PIPA Global Investments (both in Brazil and in the United Kingdom), the Institute was renamed PIPA Institute, Lucrecia and Roberto Vinhaes took over the Governance of the Institute and also made a donation of part of their shares in the IP Capital Partners to the Institute in order to provide the means to continue with its activities in the future and to help in the development of other sources of financial support.
