Part of the following series:

Central Line Series

Art on the Underground Takes a Tube-line approach to develop new artist’s commissions across the network. The Central Line Series was devised and delivered between 2011-12.

The Central line is 46 miles long, interconnects with all other Underground lines, and has 49 stations in 12 boroughs. The Central Line Series takes inspiration from the variety of people and places spanned by the line. Each artist’s project explores the theme of communication and exchange, and the connections we make with others.

Artists are:

Anna Barham – WHITE CITY

Alice Channer – Hard Metal Body

Ruth Ewan – A LOCK IS A GATE

Michael Landy – Acts of Kindness

Bob and Roberta Smith and Tim Newton – Who is Community?
