Emily Jacir Nabs Hugo Boss Prize
(Bloomberg.com, November 14, 2008)

The seventh Hugo Boss Prize, which grants $100,000 to one artist of any age or nationality every other year, was recently awarded to Emily Jacir, winner of the Golden Lion at last year's Venice Biennale. Jacir's work combines video, sound, photography, and installation to document the difficult, sometimes violent, struggle of Palestinians living on contested ground. Upon receiving the award, the artist had few words but many thanks for the distinguished crowd gathered at the Guggenheim in New York, the city Jacir calls home outside Ramallah. Other nominees for the award included Patty Chang from the US, Denmark's Joachim Koester, and Swiss artists Christoph Buchel and Roman Signer.
