Every few years, new proposals for modern art to adorn the 4th plinth in Trafalgar Square are shown off.

Not usually in a public exhibition though, so this is the first time that has happened.

Following the unveiling of David’s Shrigley’s ‘Really Good’ -- the big thumb -- this exhibition presents the shortlisted proposals for 2018 and 2020 by some of the leading artists of the moment.
