French artist Pierre Huyghe has been announced as the winner of the 2017 Nasher Prize, a $100,000-cash prize inaugurated last year by the Nasher Sculpture Center in Dallas.

The Nasher Prize jury – which includes artist Phyllida Barlow; senior curator at the National Gallery of Art Lynne Cooke; founding director of the Nasher Sculpture Center Steven A. Nash; and Nicholas Serota, current Tate director but soon to be chair of the Arts Council England – explained their decision saying Huyghe ‘has profoundly expanded the parameters of sculpture through artworks encompassing a variety of materials and disciplines.’ He will receive the award at a ceremony in Dallas on 1 April 2017.
