Every year Art on the Underground commissions temporary artworks to enrich the environment, and therefore the experiences of passengers, of a specific tube line of the London Underground. This book showcases works on the themes of “communication” and “exchange,” which were presented between 2011 and 2012 along the Central Line, the longest of London’s Tube lines. Color photographs, illustrations, project descriptions, artist bios, and commissioned essays offer a unique glimpse into the possibilities of public art, public space, community, and communication.
