Two new publications
Central line and Jubilee line Series
Each year Art on the Underground focuses its temporary commissions programme on a particular Tube line in the London Underground network. The series began in 2008 with Thin Cities, a programme of artworks commissioned and presented at a range of sites on the Piccadilly line during its centenary year.
The Thin Cities programme was commemorated with a catalogue, the first in the series, which will now continue with two new publications about the Jubilee and Central line Series:
One Thing Leads To Another – Everything Is Connected
Jubilee line series
One Thing Leads To Another – Everything Is Connected documents the 2009-2010 series of commissions for the Jubilee line. Artists for the Jubilee line series were invited to make new works that explored ideas around time, economics and travel, and how our relationships with these concepts have changed since the Jubilee line opened in 1979.
With newly commissioned essays on the history of the Jubilee line, and how it changed the fabric of London, by David Rooney, Curator of Transport at the Science Museum, London, as well as a new piece of fiction on the notion of time, travel and the city, by author, editor and publisher Matthew Stadler, One Thing Leads To Another – Everything Is Connected is a rich document of the Jubilee line series and an exciting exploration of temporary artwork in the public realm.
Central Line Series
The third book in the Tube line series, Central line series documents the ambitious programme of temporary commissions that took place along the Central line from 2011 to 2012. Artworks in the Central line series take the theme of ‘communication’ as a starting point to explore ideas around interaction, engagement and exchange, in the context of the Central line, and specific locations along the line.
Central line series includes an illustrated essay on the history of the Central line and a number of newly commissioned essays. Each artwork in the series is represented by images and accompanied by an explanatory text, alongside supplementary material selected by the artist in order to enrich our understanding of the work.
