The exhibition (13 March – 6 May 2018) brings together unseen material by Joffe, Shawcross, Kusama and all the artists contributing to the Crossrail Art Programme. Joffe's A Sunday Afternoon in Whitechapel will be on view when the new Elizabeth line station in Whitechapel opens in December 2018. Works by Kusama and Shawcross will be on view after the Liverpool Street station is completed.
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.
