Art Capital: Art for the Elizabeth line (group show)
Whitechapel Gallery, London
13 March - 6 May 2018

Spectacular new public art commissions by British and international artists will be unveiled across London from December 2018. The Crossrail Art Programme is working with artists to create public art in and around the new central London Elizabeth line stations. This unprecedented project will significantly enrich the presence of contemporary art in the capital’s public realm.

In the first overview of the Crossrail artworks, material such as maquettes, sketches and prototypes are displayed in the gallery’s project and archive spaces. The exhibition reveals the artists’ ideas and the complex process for turning artistic proposals into deliverable public art.

Norroen Trilogy Møn becomes both the starting point and central focus of a series of exhibitions the next three years, for which young as well as internationally renowned artists are invited to engage with the extraordinary nature and history of this region, that has always attracted and inspired artists. The curator of the exhibition trilogy Norroen is René Block, the Kunsthal's artistic director. René Block founded the avant-garde gallery Galerie René Block in Berlin (and later in New York) in 1964, and is since internationally known for his dedication to young and vanguard art, evident throughout his years as the director of several international Biennales (including those of Istanbul, Sydney and Cetinje) and art institutions including the Fridericianum in Kassel, TANAS – project space for contemporary art from Turkey, and Edition Block in Berlin.
