The PIPA Institute was born from Roberto Vinhaes desire to contribute to the third sector.

Seeing that there were few institutions dedicated to contemporary Brazilian art, Vinhaes created the PIPA Institute (formerly known as Instituto IP).

PIPA Global Investments is the main partner of the PIPA Institute.

The PIPA Prize, the main initiative of the PIPA Institute is held annually in the Museum of Modern Art of Rio de Janeiro (MAM-Rio), since 2010.

PIPA Institute, in partnership with Villa Aymoré, will organise exhibitions in the art gallery space at the complex.
