’20th Century’, Michael Samuels

‘20th Century’ was a site specific commission by Michael Samuels for a new multi tenanted office building at BAA Gatwick, open 24/7, designed to help sustain the continued growth of the airport. Samuels re-purposed passenger flight information boards with a comprehensive scrolling list of 20th century influential figures across politics, sports, arts and science. The work defined a sense of place and offered cultural appreciation as a new experience.

We commissioned ’20th Century’ as part of the BAA Art Programme in 1998.
