The Fourth Plinth for W4
A changing artwork chosen by you
The W4th Plinth is an art project curated by Abundance London. Every six months the large image on the TfL brick wall of the railway embankment at Turnham Green Terrace will change, showcasing an exciting artwork, short-listed by Abundance and voted on by the public.
We had lots of exciting submissions for the next round, which you can see here. The panel, led by Sir Peter Blake, will be shortlisting three, which the public can then vote on.
The current artwork
Empire Theatre, Chiswick High Road
Sir Peter Blake’s artwork was created for the Timeline mural and pays homage to the performers that used to appear at his favourite local theatre, the Chiswick Empire, which used to stand opposite Turnham Green, where the currently derelict Empire House now stands. He said it was one of the main reasons he had originally wanted to live in Chiswick. Many of the world’s top stars appeared at the Chiswick Empire, which flourished between 1912 and 1959, and the artwork features many of them.
Sir Peter is one of the best known pop artists, famous for collaging images from popular culture. His most famous works include the sleeve design for the Beatles’ album Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, the Live Aid concert poster and much much more.
