The Francis Effect

270 stations across the London Underground network. London, United Kingdom.


#LondonIsOpen artwork will be displayed in all 270 stations across the London Underground network.

Launched in 2000 to promote greater understanding of the Tube as a cultural and social environment, Art on the Underground’s mission is to work with leading artists to create extraordinary projects across Transport for London, enriching customers’ journeys today and for the future. AOTU works with artists on a huge range of projects – video and sound pieces, live performances, sculpture, posters, prints and permanent installations. Permanent works by leading artists including Knut Henrik Henrikson, Jacqueline Poncelet, John Maine and Daniel Buren have transformed Tube travellers’ experiences of King’s Cross, Edgware Road, Green Park and Tottenham Court Road stations.

The Mayor’s #LondonIsOpen campaign, launched on 18th July, aims to show the world that London remains entrepreneurial, international, and full of creativity and possibility, while reassuring the more than one million foreign nationals who live in London that they will always be welcome, and that any form of discrimination will not be tolerated.
