Teresa Margolles has been shortlisted to produce a large-scale public sculpture for the Fourth Plinth in Trafalgar Square.
Organisers of one of the world’s most prestigious contemporary public art commissions revealed a shortlist of six artists. Two will be chosen and announced in the summer, with their work unveiled in 2022 and 2024.
Teresa Margolles is one of the six, along with Nicole Eisenman, Samson Kambalu, Goshka Macuga, Ibrahim Mahama and Paloma Varga Weisz. The new proposals from the six artists will be revealed in late May 2021 when they go on display at the National Gallery. They will also be on view online. Both winning commissions will be announced this summer, and then be shown on the plinth in 2022 and 2024 respectively. Members of the Fourth Plinth commissioning group, who will select the winning entries, include the broadcaster Jon Snow and the artist Jeremy Deller.
