Anna Barriball: Art on the Underground

19.10.2011

Current exhibitor Anna Barriball was commissioned in 2008 by Transport for London to create a minimal typographic artwork About 60 miles of beautiful views.

 

Barriball collected evocative phrases taken from the back of found photographs and reworked them as printed typographic posters displayed in advertising spaces across the London Underground network.

 

Customers travelling on the Underground encountered unexpected phrases like ''About 60 miles of beautiful views.' or 'On way to birthday party.' or 'Looking back the way we had come.'.
