Out of Uniform - Tube Staff Art Exhibition

The first ever art exhibition organised by London Underground staff showing their own art work goes on display from 1st Septebmer 2010. 'Out of Uniform' is a unique event displaying paintings, photographs, poets and musicians who when in uniform work as Supervisors, ticket sellers, drivers and gate line staff.

It will run until the 14th September at The 198 Gallery in Brixton Village SW2.

These staff are showing a completely different aspect of their daily working lives. It's often a surprise when we see their hidden talents revealed, as with the Caledonian Road Tube artwork featured earlier this week.

It looks as though this exhibition will uncover some real diversity, from a poetic Supervisor, a musical ticket seller, a photographing station assistant (the very talented Version 3 Point 1 who'll be displaying work from The Slumber Line) to a bonsai-loving train driver. There are also individual websites and a documentary film to view. Everything has been put together by the staff themselves - sadly with no official support from Art on the Underground.

For further details and a list of staff who will be exhibiting, visit Out of Uniform.
