This evening is the launch of a new series of artworks commissioned for the Jubilee line from Stanmore to Stratford. It will be the first exhibition by Art on the Underground presented at City Hall.

For One thing leads to another – Everything is connected, Goldsmiths MFA Art Writing have joined Nadia Bettega, John Gerrard, Dryden Goodwin, Richard Long, Daria Martin and Matt Stokes to “respond to ideas around the concept of time from a number of perspectives: looking back at the history of the Tube, the way that it has expanded to respond to the changing shape of the city and population growth; and to think about passengers’ experience of travel, with a Tube journey giving them time to drift into imaginary worlds and take a mental break from their daily commute.”

Texts from our booklet Timepieces will be exhibited at City Hall throughout the exhibition (14 May to 10 June), and you can pick up a free copy at Jubilee Line stations.
