Platform for Art

Gloucester Road Underground station:
Gloucester Road Underground station hosts a rolling programme of four exhibitions per year on the disused platform on the District and Circle line. Some one million passengers each month see a range of work by early or mid career artists as well as those established with a world-wide reputation. The development of the programme means that people even make the journey to Gloucester Road just to see the exhibitions.

Piccadilly Circus:
In 2001 The Platform for Art programme extended to Piccadilly Circus station's ticket hall and exit Subway 2. Exhibitions of photographs, digital prints or other
reproductions are presented throughout the year.

Other projects:
Many other stations have hosted temporary exhibitions - including Great Portland Street, Stratford, Barbican, Canary Wharf, Bromley-by-Bow, Southwark, Westminster, White City and Hammersmith. In 2003 a new initiative, Go to the Gallery began to extend the Platform for Art programme still further. In collaboration with over 20 of London's galleries a series of posters featuring work by a range of artists was created. These are displayed in unusual sites all over the network including in South Kensington's museum subway, Charing Cross station, Earls Court station, Aldgate East station to name but a few.
