Join Art on the Underground and Nina Wakeford for a performance and book launch at Matt’s Gallery in Nine Elms.
The book – Our Pink Depot: The Gay Underground FLO-N202- 236000000-TRK-MST-00002-SAY-HELLO- WAVE-GOODBYE-KEN-NIE-BPS – proposes the whole of the new Northern Line Extension tunnels, which join the current line at Kennington station, as a ‘pink depot’ for London Underground.
The book is a collection of annotated accounts derived from conversations with those working on the Northern Line Extension, around which are gathered stories from LGBT staff that will operate the new line and those who frequented the Market Tavern, a pub formerly located at 1 Nine Elms Lane.
The book follows a two-year study of the Vauxhall and Nine Elms area by the artist commissioned by Art on the Underground.
Nina Wakeford is an artist, and Senior Tutor in Contemporary Art Practice and Reader in Contemporary Art at the Royal College of Art.
