With the support of the Contemporary Art Society’s Art Consultancy team the steering group at Southwark Council selected Ryan Gander, Anya Gallaccio, Conrad Shawcross and Eva Rothschild to create concepts for the final work. The artists have a period of three months to develop their design proposal. Following this, a public consultation will be held in summer 2013 to gauge opinion on each of the art work proposals.
Each artist will be judged on their ability to meet the commissioning principles agreed by both the steering group and the Contemporary Art Society ahead of the public consultation.
A final artist will be selected later in the year, and the final piece should be complete in late 2014.
