London Underground has long been a pioneer in the field of art and design, from the early twentieth century when it commissioned posters by artists such as Man Ray, Edward McKnight Kauffer and Graham Sutherland and the commission of Eduardo Paolozzi at Tottenham Court Road station in the 1980s, to the current art programme, Platform for Art. "Platform for Art" is a book that traces the project's growing success - from its fairly modest beginnings in the late 1990s, to what is now a highly ambitious and creative programme, showcasing some of the most exciting and innovative work from the contemporary international art scene. Platform for Art highlights the work of many of the participating artists: Cindy Sherman, Janette Paris, David Shrigley, Bob and Roberta Smith, Emma Kay and Chiho Aoshima and explores the broader implications of the programme. Featuring text by Alex Coles, and visually stunning reproductions of works by the participating artists, "Platform for Art" is the only comprehensive survey of what is one of London's most important and thought-provoking art programmes.
