The ever expanding creative initiative Art Below, is taking over the London Underground one step at a time. You will already likely be familiar with the quirky art works often displayed in regular advertising spaces across tube platforms, but now commuters at Kennington Tube Station will be greeted with a bounty art work created by up 16 MA students at the City & Guilds of London Art School. Twenty A1 sized panels inside the 2 passenger lifts (normally taken up by advertising) are currently dominated by a varied selection of works.
June 2010, see’s the launch of Art Below‘s third Berlin Pillar of Art project, an initiative first set up by Ben Moore whereby 14 foot high Pillars in the districts of Berlin Mitte and Prenzlauer Berg are adorned with works by selected artists. The year the project will be run in collaboration with Art Barter, a public art exchange platform set up by Lauren Jones and Alix Janta.
