The Hugo Boss Prize has established itself as a significant forum for recognising achievement in contemporary art. The prize is the fruit of longterm cooperation between Hugo Boss and the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum.
The prize carries an award of $100,000 and is administered by the Guggenheim Foundation. Previous winners include Matthew Barney (1996), Douglas Gordon (1998), Marjetica Potrč (2000), Pierre Huyghe (2002), Rirkrit Tiravanija (2004), Tacita Dean (2006), Emily Jacir (2008), and Hans-Peter Feldmann (2010).
Each juror is invited to nominate five artists for consideration. Over two days of deliberations a shortlist of six artists are agreed upon by the jury members.
The award is given to an artist whose work represents a significant development in contemporary art.
The Hugo Boss Prize sets no restrictions in terms of age, gender, race, nationality or medium, and the nominations may include young, emerging artists as well as established individuals whose public recognition may be long overdue.
