Rosa Barba, winner of the International Contemporary Art Prize winner of the Prince Pierre of Monaco Foundation, has found great success at Brazil’s São Paulo Biennial festival, the second oldest art biennial after Venice.

The new film by Rosa Barba, “Disseminate and Hold” was screened for the first time at this year’s 32nd Biennial and is being presented as part of the “Live Uncertainty” exhibition (September 7 running through December 11).

Rosa Barba was named winner of the 2016 PIAC – Prix International d’Art Contemporain (International Contemporary Art Prize) – for her work “Subconscious Society”, Feature, 2014. The artist received a prize of € 20,000 and a € 20,000 sum dedicated to the production of a new work.

Her new project, “Disseminate and Hold”, produced under the guidance of the PIAC Artistic Director, Lorenzo Fusi, studies geographies and artificial landscapes and their relationship often linked to political agendas and utopian visions of society.

The Prince Pierre of Monaco Foundation awards the PIAC by a jury under the artistic Presidency of HSH The Princess of Hanover.
