Smile for London, an exciting new initiative launched at the Museum of London, aims to turn the screens on the London Underground into a digital playground. Scheduled to coincide with the return to work in 2011, film, art and animation is being displayed on digital platform screens at key stations during the weekday morning and evening rush hour commute. Developed by Meme Partnership, the campaign aims to bring creative moving image to a wider audience and to introduce diverse forms of creativity to the public space. Entries have been chosen by a panel of leading curators including onedotzero and Neville Brody.
ZoŽ Walker & Neil Bromwich have recently exhibited at the ICA, the BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art, Gateshead, Australian Centre for Contemorary Art, Melbourne, South London Gallery, the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art, Edinburgh, Turner Contemporary, Margate, KŁnstlerhaus, Vienna and Zeppelin Museum, Germany. They have also presented live performances and talks at the Whitechapel Gallery, London, CCA Glasgow, Modern Art Oxford, John Hansard Gallery, Southampton, Camden Arts Centre, London, Tate Modern and Tate Britain. Walker & Bromwich are represented by Pippy Houldsworth Gallery, London.
The film shorts will be on display at the Museum of London and London Underground stations including Liverpool Street, Oxford Circus, Euston, Piccadilly Circus, Victoria and Waterloo.
