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.

Art is a prerequisite for the progress of society. Corporate Art Initiatives contribute to this progression. Based on extensive research, Viviane Mörmann presents 21 promising corporate art initiatives (CAIs). She introduces different types of art initiatives and provides a standardized scheme to evaluate them. This volume features CAIs from the classic corporate art space to the public art challenge, and the virtual museum. It draws attention to the subject of CAIs to broaden the reader's knowledge and to mediate access to current CAIs. The Corporate Art Index thus addresses art lovers, artists, curators, business and marketing professionals, architects and designers, art historians, art fair organizers and journalists.

It is impossible to imagine London without the Tube: the beating heart of the city, the Underground shuttles over a billion passengers each year below its busy streets and across its leafy suburbs. The distinctive roundel, colour-coded maps and Johnston typeface have become design classics, recognised and imitated worldwide. Opening in 1863, the first sections were operated by steam engines, yet throughout its long history the Tube has been at the forefront of contemporary design, pioneering building techniques, electrical trains and escalators, and business planning. Architects such as Leslie W. Green and Charles Holden developed a distinctively English version of Modernism, and the latest stations for the Jubilee line extension, Overground and Elizabeth line carry this aesthetic forward into the twenty-first century. In this major work published in association with Transport for London, Tube expert Oliver Green traces the history of the Underground, following its troubles and triumphs, its wartime and peacetime work, and the essential part it has played in shaping London’s economy, geography, tourism and identity. Specially commissioned photography by Benjamin Graham (UK Landscape Photographer of the Year 2017) brings the story to life in vivid portraits of London Underground’s stations, tunnels and trains.

Arguing in favour of a critical return to the 'nation' as a category, this study provides the first sustained account of artwriting in the British context over the full extent of its development from the eighteenth century to the present day. Mark A. Cheetham asks whether 'English' traditions of artwriting have been judged inappropriately according to imported criteria-and demonstrates that 'English Art Theory' is not an oxymoron.
