The Line

A world class sculpture trail linking the O2 and the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park featuring work by Damien Hirst, Martin Creed, Gary Hume and Eduardo Paolozzi amongst others

A world-class sculpture trail called The Line, featuring artworks from a host of distinguished contemporary artists including Damien Hirst, Martin Creed, Gary Hume and Eduardo Paolozzi, opened in May 2015 and several artworks are situated at London’s Royal Docks.

The Line links The O2 and the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, with the aim of bringing high-quality artworks out of warehouses and into the public realm so they can be enjoyed by as many people as possible. Visitors are able to join The Line at any point along the route to explore the three miles of waterways.

The sculptures in the Royal Docks include works by Martin Creed, Eduardo Paolozzi, Sterling Ruby and James Balmforth.

The Line was set up by contemporary art dealer Megan Piper and the late urban regeneration expert Clive Dutton OBE, with support from award-winning architects Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners.
