Wolfgang Tillmans is the recipient of the 2018 Kaiserring (or "Emperor's Ring") prize from the city of Goslar in Germany. Inaugurated in 1975 and judged by a panel of curators and museum directors, the prize is organized by the city of Goslar and the Verein zur Förderung Moderne Kunst (Association for the Promotion of Modern Art). Previous winners include fellow gallery artists Isa Genzken (who was awarded the prize in 2017), Sigmar Polke, Bridget Riley, and Richard Serra.

The artist's first solo exhibition in Africa is currently on view at the Musée d’Art Contemporain et Multimédias in Kinshasa.

Further upcoming solo exhibitions in 2018 include Carré d'Art–Musée d'art contemporain in Nîmes (May 2018) and the Irish Museum of Modern Art, Dublin (October 2018).
