New public art commissions by British and international artists will be unveiled across London from December 2018.

The Crossrail Art Programme is working with artists to create public art in and around the new central London Elizabeth line stations. This unprecedented project will significantly enrich the presence of contemporary art in the capital’s public realm.

In the first overview of the Crossrail artworks, material such as maquettes, sketches and prototypes are displayed in the gallery’s project and archive spaces. The exhibition reveals the artists’ ideas and the complex process for turning artistic proposals into deliverable public art.

The new public art for the Elizabeth line is being commissioned by the Crossrail Art Foundation which has raised funds from corporate sponsors, with match funding from the City of London Corporation.
