The long-awaited exhibition of Gold Card
Adventures was presented by Platform
for Art at Piccadilly
Circus Underground Station, London. The exhibition
took place from 17 January - 21 March 2005.
To advertise the exhibition bright pink promotional posters were placed in each of the 275 station on the Underground network in January
- February 2005. Fifty of these posters are now available
for sale, signed by the artist.

The exhibition was located in the ticket hall and exit subway 2 of the Underground
station. The exhibited work was a series of large scale posters showing imitation
postcards from an exciting range of target destinations reached during Gold
Card Adventures. The reverse of the postcards were shown with a note of the
dates the different distances were reached en route.
Twenty of these images were displayed at the Underground
station. The exhibition can still be seen on this website where these twenty
postcards, plus an additional eight bonus images can
be viewed along with the full
list of every tube, train and bus journey made during
the one year project.
Displaying Gold Card Adventures in Piccadilly Circus Underground
Station re-connected the fantasy element of the project with the real experience
of travelling in London.
