The Line

programme partner

The Line is an ambitious public art project in East London that connects Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park and The O2, following the waterways and the line of the Greenwich Meridian. Its outdoor exhibition programme offers a journey through a dynamic urban landscape where everyone can explore art, nature and heritage for free. 


The Line was co-founded in 2015 by its Director, Megan Piper, and the late regeneration expert Clive Dutton OBE (1953-2015) whose life’s work was rooted in a commitment to improving the quality of life for people in urban environments. The project was established to democratise access to art by introducing sculptures that were previously hidden from public view into the public realm for audiences to experience for free.

Artworks currently on The Line by:  Larry Achiampong, Rana Begum, Alex Chinneck, Serge Attukwei Clottey, Tracey Emin,  Abigail Fallis, Laura Ford, Madge Gill, Antony Gormley, Ron Haselden, Carsten Höller, Gary Hume, Yinka Ilori, Anish Kapoor, Somang Lee, Virginia Overton, Eva Rothschild, Thomson & Craighead, Richard Wilson.
