1 day left to see Hans Haacke's Gift Horse on the Fourth Plinth
Unveiled back in March 2015, Hans Haacke's Gift Horse will be taken down from the Fourth Plinth on 6 September. If you were planning to see it, you'll need to act quickly as there's only 1 day left to see it!
What is Gift Horse about?
Gift Horse is based on an etching by the famous English painter George Stubbs. Tied to the horse’s front leg is an electronic ribbon displaying live the ticker of the London Stock Exchange, completing the link between power, money and history.
The next piece to go up onto the Fourth Plinth will be David Shrigley’s Really Good - a seven-metre-high hand giving a thumbs up cast in bronze.
As a goodbye to Gift Horse, here is a round up of some of our favourite images on instagram.
