Faced with the daunting challenge of following Hans-Peter Feldmann‘s crowd-pleasing take on prize-money-as-artwork are the six artists shortlisted for the 2012 Hugo Boss Prize. Administered by the Guggenheim Foundation, the $100,000 prize is awarded every other year to an artist who has made an important contribution to contemporary art. Past winners include Emily Jacir, Matthew Barney, and Pierre Huyghe. The finalists for the prize’s ninth incarnation are Trisha Donnelly, Rashid Johnson, Qiu Zhijie, Monika Sosnowska, Danh Vo, and Tris Vonna-Michell. The winner will be selected by a jury chaired by Guggenheim curator Nancy Spector and announced next fall. In addition to a cool tetrahedral trophy (pictured) that resembles the coveted Triforce from The Legend of Zelda, the winning artist also gets a show at New York’s Guggenheim Museum in 2013.
