The students worked with three artists in a series of innovative workshops, developed with ReachOut RCA, to create pieces of art inspired by Mark Wallinger’s Labyrinth – a unique artwork at every Underground station celebrating 150 years of the Tube.
The workshops saw students visit their local Tube station to meet London Underground staff, see their local Labyrinth artwork and work with artists Beth Atkinson, Holly Graham and Anne Harild to make drawings, collages, sound recordings and photographs screen prints.
Louise Coysh, Art on the Underground manager at London Underground, said: ‘I’m really impressed with the creativity these young Londoners have shown while working with artists Beth, Holly and Anne.’
Tube customers will be able to see the resulting artwork through a combination of posters and Tracing the Line exhibitions at nine Underground stations. There is also an online exhibition and film celebrating the creativity of these young Londoners.
