HUGO BOSS has been conferring the HUGO BOSS PRIZE in cooperation with the distinguished Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation in New York since 1996. Every two years the prize singles out artists whose oeuvre constitutes an outstanding contribution to contemporary art.

It honors both young, up-and-coming artists as well as their established contemporary counterparts.

On October 22, 2015 HUGO BOSS and the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum and Foundation have released the shortlist for the HUGO BOSS PRIZE 2016. The six artists nominated by the international jury are: Tania Bruguera (Cuba), Mark Leckey (England), Ralph Lemon (USA), Laura Owens (USA), Wael Shawky (Egypt) and
Anicka Yi (South Korea).

The winner announcement and the twenty years anniversary event will take place in fall 2016.

An independent jury comprised of curators and art critics is appointed anew for each award, and makes its decision based on the nominated artists’ entire career. Carrying a stipend of USD 100,000, the prize is administered by the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation. The winner is also granted a solo exhibition of his or her work at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York.

The HUGO BOSS PRIZE numbers among the most highly coveted awards for contemporary art worldwide. Past years have produced an impressive portfolio of exceptional work from a range of artistic practices.
