Art on the Tideway

Art on the Tideway 

Art on the Tideway is an ambitious public art programme for London, inviting leading contemporary artists to meaningfully connect with London’s past and future as the tunnel is built. With over fifty temporary and permanent commissions, it challenges artists to animate new environments and create engaging interventions for the city’s diverse audiences. Following the east – west path of the tunnel, it marks the River Thames as a new cultural venue; as we turn back to face the river.

Public Art and Heritage Interpretation strategies

With 24 construction sites across the capital, Tideway has a platform to showcase local artists through permanent and temporary commissions, including foreshore structures and art on hoardings. We have been working with schools and artists and tell our story through our hoardings, and have a number of engaging and inspiring pieces already installed across our sites for the public to enjoy.

Our Public Art and Heritage Interpretation strategies outline the development of public realm and public art for the
Thames Tideway Tunnel.
