Hugo Boss Award
The Hugo Boss Prize honors outstanding achievement in contemporary art, celebrating the work of remarkable artists whose practices are among the most innovative and influential of our time. The biennial prize-which marks its 20th anniversary this year-sets no restrictions on age, gender, nationality, or medium. Juried by an international panel of distinguished museum directors, curators, and critics, it is administered by the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation and carries an award of $100,000. Since its inception in 1996, the Hugo Boss Prize has been awarded to Matthew Barney (1996), Douglas Gordon (1998), Marjetica PotrÄ (2000), Pierre Huyghe (2002), Rirkrit Tiravanija (2004), Tacita Dean (2006), Emily Jacir (2008), Hans-Peter Feldmann (2010), Danh Vo (2012), and Paul Chan (2014). Work by each artist who receives the award is presented in a solo exhibition at the Guggenheim Museum in New York. The Hugo Boss Prize 2016 winner will be announced on October 20, 2016, and a solo exhibition of that artist’s work will be presented at the Guggenheim in the spring of 2017. The shortlist artists are: Tania Bruguera, Mark Leckey, Ralph Lemon, Laura Owens, Wael Shawky, and Anicka Yi.
