NEW YORK, NY.- The Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation and HUGO BOSS AG present the short list for THE HUGO BOSS PRIZE 2010 with a special video on the award and this year’s nominees.

As Nancy Spector, Deputy Director and Chief Curator, Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation and chair of the jury says in the video, the prize was created in 1996 to “honor innovation in contemporary art, and to single out artists who were creating truly inventive works of art.” This year’s finalists are Cao Fei, Hans-Peter Feldmann, Roman Ondák, Walid Raad, Natascha Sadr Haghighian, and Apichatpong Weerasethakul.

The biennial award is administered by the foundation and juried by an international panel of museum directors, curators, and critics. The prize sets no restrictions in terms of age, gender, race, nationality, or medium, and the nominations may include emerging artists as well as established individuals whose public recognition may be long overdue. Previous winners include Matthew Barney (1996), Douglas Gordon (1998), Marjetica Potrč (2000), Pierre Huyghe (2002), Rirkrit Tiravanija (2004), Tacita Dean (2006), and Emily Jacir (2008). The 2010 prize carries with it an award of $100,000.

The prizewinner will be selected and announced in November 2010, and the artist’s work will be presented in a solo exhibition in 2011 at the Guggenheim Museum, New York.
