Last night at the Guggenheim Museum, Paul Chan was presented with the 2014 Hugo Boss Prize, which honors artists’ whose oeuvre provides outstanding contributions to the evolution of contemporary art. Chan is known for his political activism, animated film projections, and invented fonts that often times explore issues related to American culture and politics.
Chosen by an international jury comprised of museum curators and directors, Chan was awarded $100,000 administered by the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation. In addition to the prize, Chan’s work will appear in a solo exhibition at the Guggenheim Museum in New York in the spring of 2015. Notable guests such as Michael Avedon, RoseLee Goldberg, Kehinde Wiley, and Inez van Lamsweerde came out to support Chan and the other artists nominated by the jury, Sheela Gowda, Camille Henrot, Charline von Heyl, and Hassan Khan.
