Paul Chan wins Guggenheim's 2014 Hugo Boss Prize

Congratulations to Paul Chan for winning the 2014 Hugo Boss Prize! The Guggenheim Museum says, “With the selection of Paul Chan as the recipient of the Hugo Boss Prize 2014, the jury recognizes his singular artistic voice, which manifests in myriad forms, including sculpture, animated video, and light projection, as well as community-based performance and, most recently, an electronic and print publishing venture. Regardless of platform, each of Chan’s indelible and at times provocative projects deftly excavates our cultural landscape. We applaud his unfettered commitment to experimentation and look forward to the continued evolution of his practice.”

Badlands asked Chan to comment on winning the prize and how he feels about the success. Chan replied, "I'm afraid the success comes from a complete misunderstanding of my work." :( Whatever the case, consider catching up with Chan by reading his latest books from Badlands (listed on the left).
