NEW YORK, NY.- Since 1996, the Guggenheim has collaborated with HUGO BOSS to honor an artist whose work represents a significant development in contemporary art. In advance of the announcement of this year’s winner on November 1, learn about the recent and upcoming activity of the artists short-listed for this year’s prize.

San Francisco native Trisha Donnelly will have a solo exhibition in 2013 at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (March 9–June 2), debuting a new body of work that responds to the museum environment. Earlier this summer, Donnelly won the inaugural Faber-Castell International Drawing Award, given by the Neues Museum, Nuremberg, Germany.

This spring, Rashid Johnson was awarded the David C. Driskell Prize by the High Museum of Art, Atlanta. The national award honors contributions to the field of African American art and art history. In April of this year, the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago presented Johnson's first major museum solo exhibition, Rashid Johnson: Message to Our Folks.

Commissioned by the Public Art Fund, Monica Sosnowska presents Fir Tree, a 40-foot tall sculpture located at the Doris C. Freedman Plaza in New York’s Central Park, from October 24, 2012 to February 17, 2013. For this work, Sosnowska recreates the external staircase of a Socialist housing block, using various industrial machines to contort and alter its original form.

As chief curator of the 9th Shanghai Biennale (October 2, 2012–March 13, 2013), Qiu Zhijie will organize artworks and installations responding to the theme Reactivation, which views energy collection from the preindustrial period as coming from the collective unconscious, rather than the exploitation of natural resources.

Danh Vo's multi-part installation We the People, which reconstructs the full-size Statue of Liberty in copper fragments, was included in the 2012 New Museum Triennial: The Ungovernables before it headed to the Art Institute of Chicago, where it is currently exhibited through April 7, 2013. The installation is in conjunction with Uterus, his solo show at the Renaissance Society at the University of Chicago (September 23–December 16, 2012).

This fall, Tris Vonna-Michell draws on his recent residency at Gibside, an estate on the English countryside, for a solo exhibition at BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art, Newcastle upon Tyne, UK (October 19–November 11, 2012). It incorporates slide projections and a narrated soundtrack, inspired by the relationships between humans and nature and the changing aesthetic, structure, and function of the site over time.

A solo exhibition by the winning artist will be presented at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in 2013. A publication featuring the work of the six finalists was published in summer 2012.
