FURTHER DOWN THE LINE is a contemporary art space and exhibition programme founded in May 2023 by Curator and Writer Adam Carr.
Taking place in Aigburth Railway Station, Liverpool, UK, FURTHER DOWN THE LINE’s exhibitions are presented in a display case housed in the station’s waiting room, which features Merseyrail’s yellow signature colour. It
is open to the public 7 days a week during exhibitions.
The programme presents 6 solo exhibitions annually of international artists, travelling in, in its first year, from destinations as far as Afghanistan, Denmark, Canada and United States.
FURTHER DOWN THE LINE identifies with a lineage of unorthodox exhibition practices that have sought to place contemporary art in closer contact with a public, including Skulptur Projekte Münster, Münster, founded by Kasper König (1977-); ‘Places with a Past: New Site-specific Art in Charleston’, the Spoleto Festival, South Carolina, curated by Mary Jane Jacob (1991); and The Wrong Gallery, New York, by Maurizio Cattelan, Massimiliano Gioni and Ali Subotnick (2002-2005) among many others.
A non-for-profit space, FURTHER DOWN THE LINE is for artistic, curatorial, and educational innovation. It aims to contribute to critical discourses of contemporary visual art and encourages intercultural and cross-generational dialogues by generating space for presentation, reflection, discussion, and exchange.
A graphic identity, running over its website, signage, and related activity, uses the Rail Alphabet, a typeface designed by Margaret Calvert and Jock Kinneir in the 1960s for signage on the British Rail.
