Overview

Mike Grundy

An exemplar of ground-breaking poster art and graphic design in the first half of the 20th century, London Underground went on from the 1960s to the current day to launch a programme of permanent, large-scale artworks across its stations. Leading and aspiring artists from Britain and abroad have been asked for over 60 years to design and deliver the art.

This talk takes the audience on a guided tour of station art, demonstrating how the artwork provides passengers with a stimulating, pictorial guide to the history of London, its people and culture, its achievements, and its tragedies.

UPDATE: Please note that Window on the World talks will now only take place on a face to face basis.
