Through October 27, the Guggenheim Museum presents The Hugo Boss Prize 2018: Simone Leigh, Loophole of Retreat, an exhibition of new work by artist Simone Leigh, winner of the 2018 Hugo Boss Prize. Leigh’s presentation includes new sculptures and a sound installation, as well as a printed broadsheet with text by MacArthur Foundation grant recipient Saidiya Hartman and a film program featuring works by the artist and by director Madeleine Hunt-Ehrlich. Selected by a jury of international critics and curators, Leigh is the twelfth artist to receive the biennial prize, which was established in 1996 to recognize significant achievement in contemporary art.
