NOW Gallery is a new public exhibition space for contemporary art, fashion, photography and design on Greenwich Peninsula. A permanent, free gallery which features work from established and emerging artists, designers and other creative practitioners. The importance of connecting to the locality and introducing more interactive design and art work to the seven meter high space is a key element of the gallery’s philosophy, plus commissioning new art and design which features within the built environment of the Peninsula and have realised ambitious site-specific commissions including Empathy Museum, Milkshake Tree and Bullet from a shooting star for Greenwich Peninsula.

The gallery presents three major solo shows a year, curated by Jemima Burrill. These commissions have so far featured fashion designers Phoebe English and Molly Goddard, artists Alex Chinneck and Robert Orchardson and designers Simon Heijdens and Something and Son.

‘NOW Gallery acts as the catalyst with exhibitions responding to the continuously evolving Greenwich Peninsula site. Fashion designers, designers, and artists create exhibitions which are playful, inspiring and bring our unconventional gallery space to life. How design can become art and how artists can create design has been our preoccupation.’

 – Jemima Burrill

NOW also features a series of exhibitions and site – wide interventions for Greenwich Peninsula commissioned and produced by Kaia Charles – these include the Human Stories photographic series, Colourblock Cranes by Morag Myerscough, ELCAF /NOW collaborative exhibitions and outdoor murals including Assembly Way by Jack Taylor, The Big Dreamer by Matt Blease, The Change by Ricardo Cavolo and Frequency by Patternity.
