Seven shortlisted for Hugo Boss Prize 2006

Dec '05
Lisa Dennison, Director of the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, and Dr. Bruno Sälzer, Chairman and CEO of HUGO BOSS were announcing that the shortlist for the HUGO BOSS PRIZE 2006. The presentation of the finalists will take place within the scope of a glamorous event in Miami Beach, Florida, coinciding with the Art Basel show.

The finalists selected by the jury are Jennifer Allora (U.S.A.) and Guillermo Calzadilla (Puerto Rico), John Bock (Germany), Tacita Dean (U.K.), Damián Ortega (Mexico), Aïda Ruilova (USA), and Tino Sehgal (Germany).

Lisa Dennison stated that since its inception, the HUGO BOSS PRIZE has become one of the premiere juried prizes of the contemporary art world.

Perhaps its greatest reward has been to provide the Guggenheim with the opportunity to identify, exhibit, collect, and honor the work of extraordinarily talented artists who are actively redefining cultural and intellectual boundaries around the world.

Bruno Sälzer informed that they are delighted that the HUGO BOSS PRIZE is now celebrating its tenth anniversary. This demonstrates how firmly the award has become
anchored in the contemporary art world and also underscores their continuing commitment to the arts.

The biennial prize – carrying a stipend of U.S. $50,000 – is administered by the Guggenheim Foundation and is juried by a distinguished international panel of museum directors, curators and critics.

The award is conferred upon artists whose work represents a significant development in contemporary art, and sets no restrictions in terms of age, gender, race, nationality, or media. The nominations include young, emerging artists as well as established individuals whose public recognition may be long overdue.
