with Mark Wallinger
Turner Prize Winning artist Mark Wallinger will be joining us for this special event to talk through one of his landmark pieces, Labyrinth, commissioned by TfL to celebrate 150 years of the Tube, which itself is celebrating 10 years this year.
(You can see details of the project on TfL's website.)
Mark will talk about how the idea emerged and was developed in collaboration with the organisation, stakeholders and customers to produce a work that lives on today. He will then share part of his process and lead us in a session of exploring organisations using drawing and doodling.

“Mark has created some of the most subtly intelligent and influential artworks of the last thirty years. Wallinger is known for his career-long engagement with ideas of power, authority, artifice and illusion. Using epic narratives, lyrical metaphors and ardent punning, the artist interleaves the mythological, the political and the everyday.” Hauser & Wirth.
Mark's impressive CV includes:
- Mark won the Turner Prize in 2007 for his installation State Britain.
- He was the first artist to occupy the empty fourth plinth in Trafalgar Square with Ecce Homo, pictured above, (1999–2000).
- Labyrinth (2013), a permanent commission for Art on the Underground, was created to celebrate 150 years of the London Underground.
