Nominees for the 1st Annual Art Awards at the Guggenheim Museum

On October 29, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum inaugurates its first ever Annual Art Awards, which will be presented by artist Rob Pruitt.

The Art Awards celebrates select individuals, exhibitions, and projects that have made a significant impact on the field of contemporary art during the past year. Pruitt, whose conceptual practice is rooted in a pop sensibility and a playful critique of art world structures, has conceived the event as a performance-based artwork which follows the format of a Hollywood awards ceremony.

A complete list of categories and nominees can be viewed here. I particularly like the cheeky award trophy that will be handed out to winners.
