Liliane Lijn, Light Pyramid 

Half of the artists featuring on the current short list to produce the next artwork for the prestigious Fourth Plinth Commission in Trafalgar Square, London, have had exhibitions and projects with MK Gallery.  The shortlisted artist are Liliane Lijn, Mark Leckey, Marcus Coates, Hans Haacke, Ugo Rondinone and David Shrigley.


Liliane Lijn's Light Pyramid, commissioned by MK Gallery in collaboration with The Parks Trust, installed in Campbell Park in summer 2012, serves both as a permanent artwork and a unique beacon for the city.  


Marcus Coates' first survey exhibition in a UK public gallery here in 2010 featured early film pieces, sculpture, sound, costumes and photographs as well as new work .  The exhibition was accompanied by a Limited Edition Print (available to purchase from MK Gallery Shop).


Using material sourced from Milton Keynes Gallery's archive, Mark Leckey, winner of the 2008 Turner Prize, and Martin McGeown, Director of Cabinet Gallery, London, collaborated in 2010 to make an exhibition marking Milton Keynes Gallery's tenth anniversary year.
