Canary Wharf Tube Station


Canary Wharf Screen is an innovative new motion picture screening program that will launch at Canary Wharf Tube station this March. The program will be presented on one of London’s largest projection screens, located in the station's vast ticket hall designed by famed “Gherkin” architect Sir Norman Foster. With more than 40 million people passing through the station every year, Canary Wharf is one of the busiest stations in the London Underground's network.


The inaugural 2012 series of Canary Wharf Screen will be split into four seasons, with each season offering insight into the UK’s leading filmmakers and film institutions while surveying the strength and vibrancy of the London arts community through collaboration.


Starting March 1st and running until the end of May, the first season of Canary Wharf Screen will be curated by Film and Video Umbrella. Film and Video Umbrella's mandate is to “commission, curate and produce film, video and other moving-image works by artists which are presented in collaboration with galleries and other cultural partners across the UK.” During their season of Screen, FVU will present The City in the City, a series of commissioned films that “explore how individuals navigate and occupy urban space.” Within the environment of Canary Wharf station, surrounded by commuters, the films will consider the phenomenon of the crowd: “as a fact of everyday existence, a source of collective identity and belonging and as a possible force and agent of change.”

Seasons two through four will see similarly thought provoking collaborations with Animate (the only arts organisation in the UK dedicated to championing experimental animation), LUX (a national public arts agency) and the British Film Institute respectively.

Canary Wharf Screen is the work of Art on the Underground - London Underground’s art programme, producing high calibre artworks throughout the network, enhancing the millions of journeys made every day. Art on the Underground's aim is to promote a greater understanding of the Tube as a cultural and social environment through the creative commissioning of artworks. With around three and a half million passengers using the network per day, Art on the Underground projects are exposed to one of the largest and most diverse audiences in Europe.
