|Richard Armstrong, Director, Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum and Foundation, and Claus-Dietrich Lahrs, Chairman and CEO, HUGO BOSS AG, announced tonight that artist Paul Chan has been awarded the Hugo Boss Prize 2014. Chan is the tenth artist to receive the biennial honor, which was established in 1996 to recognize significant achievement in contemporary art.|
A jury selected Paul Chan as the winner of the 2014 Prize from a short list of five finalists, which included Sheela Gowda, Camille Henrot, Hassan Khan, and Charline von Heyl. The international jury, chaired by Nancy Spector, Deputy Director and Jennifer and David Stockman Chief Curator, Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation, was comprised of eminent curators and museum directors, including Katherine Brinson, Curator, Contemporary Art, Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum; Doryun Chong, Chief Curator, M+, Hong Kong; Tim Griffin, Executive Director and Chief Curator, The Kitchen, New York; Polly Staple, Director, Chisenhale Gallery, London; and Ari Wiseman, Deputy Director, Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation.
The jury statement describes their decision: “With the selection of Paul Chan as the recipient of the Hugo Boss Prize 2014, the jury recognizes his singular artistic voice, which manifests itself in myriad forms, including sculpture, animated video, and light projection, as well as community-based performance and, most recently, an electronic and print publishing venture called Badlands Unlimited. Regardless of platform, each of Chan’s indelible and at-times provocative projects deftly excavates our cultural landscape. We applaud his unfettered commitment to experimentation and look forward to the continued evolution of his practice. All of the Hugo Boss Prize 2014 finalist artists are creating groundbreaking and influential work, and we celebrate each artist’s rich contribution to the field of contemporary art.”
