The Canary Wharf Screen project launches later this week, bringing a series of artists’ films to Canary Wharf underground station. The trailer below shows a selection of the works that will be projected in the station’s vast ticket hall…

The project is part of the Art on the Underground initiative, which commissions artists to create works for display in and around the Underground. Canary Wharf Screen, which is programmed in collaboration with Film and Video Umbrella, Animate Projects, LUX and the BFI, will begin later this week and run for a year. There will be four screening seasons: the first is based on the theme ‘The City in the City’, and will explore different versions of city life. Artists who are showing works in this season include Suki Chan, Marcus Coates, Dryden Goodwin, Melanie Manchot, Karen Mirza and Brad Butler.
