New Tube Map

Londoners will soon have the chance to own an artwork by Turner Prize-winning artist Rachel Whiteread. Art on the Underground commissioned her to design the latest cover for the Tube Map, the 20th. It's full of round holes, exposing parts of the map within. Whiteread is big on holes. She punningly calls her creation The Hole of London 2014. Groan. With more strikes planned over ticket office closures, I can't help wondering how much Art on the Underground lashed out on Whiteread's clever-dick nonsense. Too much is my guess. The new free maps will be released at underground stations on 16 May. CLICK for more information.
