March 15–May 27, 2013
Artist: Danh Vo

This exhibition is organized in honor of Danh Vo’s receipt of the Hugo Boss Prize. Vo is the ninth artist to receive the biennial award, having been selected by an international jury of curators in recognition of his significant contribution to contemporary art. Vo’s work illuminates the entwined strands of private experience and collective history that shape our sense of self. Emerging from a process of research, chance encounters, and delicate personal negotiations, his installations unearth the latent connotations and memories embedded in familiar forms. Curated by Katherine Brinson, Associate Curator, Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum.
