Elements of art installations, which range from a massive real-time, one year long projection in Canary Wharf Underground station, to portraits of young people from areas local to the Jubilee line, are displayed at City Hall.

The works have been commissioned by Art on the Underground, London Underground's art programme, from six contemporary artists: Nadia Bettega, John Gerrard, Dryden Goodwin, Richard Long, Daria Martin and Matt Stokes and from Goldsmiths MFA Art Writing Students.
