Artists working for London Underground stage second exhibition

The second art exhibition organised by London Underground staff showing their own art work goes on display from Monday 5th September 2011. For the second year '
Out of Uniform' is will be displaying photographs, poetry, art and music from people, who when in uniform, work as supervisors, ticket sellers, train drivers and gate line staff on the Tube.

It will run until the 10th September 2011 at The 198 Gallery in Brixton Village SW2. All are welcome to the launch party on the 8th September 2011.

Out of Uniform 2011

It's great to see these staff are showing a completely different aspect of their daily working lives. As regular readers of this blog appreciate, it's often a surprise when we see their hidden talents revealed, as with the Caledonian Road Tube artist Kim last featured earlier this year.

Once again, this exhibition will uncover some real talent and diversity, ranging from Ben Langham - aka Ben Phaze of Tunnel Sounds - who makes amazing club music sampling sounds recorded from the London Underground, to a photographic trainee train driver, (sorry Train Operator) the immensely talented Anne Manningas aka Version 3 Point 1. There are also individual websites and a documentary film to view. Everything has been put together by the staff themselves - sadly, yet again there appears to be no official support from Art on the Underground.

For further details and more on all the staff who will be exhibiting, visit Out of Uniform or contact the curator, David Nevin, a station supervisor at West Ruislip Tube, on contact@davidnevin.co.uk for more information.
