London Underground Hosts A Pop-Up Gallery
Commuters can purchase affordably priced, limited edition prints at Piccadilly Circus station.
Art on the Underground is an initiative by Transport for London that aims to bring art into the Tube through commissioned works, including painting and photography, train wraps, and tube map cover designs. In just a couple of months, commuters will have the opportunity to purchase selected commissioned prints, all in the convenience of their commute.
The pop-up event, called Print Shop, is co-hosted by Own Art, and will take place from April 8 to 19, 2014 in the Piccadilly Circus station. The limited edition prints were originally commissioned by Art on the Underground in celebration of the Underground’s 150th anniversary in May 2013 in a project called 15 for 150. Prices are expected to range from £60 to £550. Artists include Runa Islam, Idris Khan, Sarah Lucas, Goshka Macuga, Frances Stark, Wolfgang Tillmans and Gillian Wearing.
