Art Buzz: Hugo Boss Prize finalists & a musical shantytown in New Orleans

Hugo Boss Prize Finalists Announced: Six finalists including Danh Vo, Qiu Zhijie and Monika Sosnowska have been announced for this year’s Huge Boss prize, which awards a $100,000 grant as well as a dedicated exhibit at the Guggeinheim to innovators in the contemporary art scene. A winner won’t be announced until next fall, but the nomination alone is sure to launch the young artists into the spotlight, at least for the next twelve months.
