TfL Tube: Spectacular new attractions coming to the London Underground in 2024

TfL's Art On the Underground in 2024 will feature a mural, a mosaic and a sound installation - including a piece at Heathrow Airport.

The 2024 artists have been announced for Transport for London’s (TfL) Art On The Underground programme, with new pieces including a commission for one of the Underground stations at Heathrow Airport.

Joy Gregory, Joe Namy, Claudette Johnson, Rita Keegan, and Hannah Quinlan and Rosie Hastings will create works as part of the programme.

Justine Simons OBE, deputy mayor for culture and the creative industries, said: "Art on the Underground is renowned around the world for transforming our Tube into a large public art gallery. Next year will see the partnership between contemporary artists, communities and history continue, bringing to life stories of diversity, culture and design from across London. I am confident that these striking artworks will be a welcome addition for commuters and visitors as they travel through the city, helping to build a better London for everyone.”

James Reed CBE, chairman and chief executive of recruitment firm Reed, said: “During many commutes through London, I have admired the impressive pieces and installations created by some of the very best emerging and established artists. Reed has a long history of supporting people and communities across London to find meaningful employment, including through our valued partnership with TfL. I look forward to the year ahead with many more interesting commutes, alongside the millions of people who are on their way to work.” Eleanor Pinfield, head of art on the Underground at TfL, said: “Bringing leading international artists to the spaces of the Tube in partnership with Reed, our 2024 programme invites a focus on the art and design history of London Underground, whilst also exploring the contemporary terrain of London today. The commissions ask us to reflect again on our histories; on whose voices are foregrounded and whose are overlooked and raises questions on how we might interrogate that history today.”

The 2023 programme saw the first in a brand-new series of sound artworks launch on the Tube network, by artist Shenece Oretha, a 60-metre-long amphibian sculptural installation at Gloucester Road station by Monster Chetwynd, and a major performance by Barby Asante at Stratford station of her seminal piece Declaration of Independence.
