NOW Gallery is a public exhibition space for contemporary art, fashion, design and photography on Greenwich Peninsula, South East London.
A permanent, free gallery designed by Marks Barfield Architects, which features work from established and emerging artists, designers and creative practitioners. A key feature of NOW’s artist interventions is their immersive nature. The glass facade frames this seven meter high space, creating a window into an artistic world.
The gallery presents three solo shows a year. These commissions have so far featured fashion designers Richard Malone, Charles Jeffrey, Molly Goddard; and Glasgow based artists Laura Aldridge and James Rigler alongside designers Studio Morison, Camille Walala, and Fred Butler. Two further exhibition strands are curated by Kaia Charles; Human Stories– an annual photographic series exploring social themes and NOW Gallery’s Young Artist exhibition which has most recently featured Hattie Stewart.
‘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 is our preoccupation.’
– Jemima Burrill
In conjunction with NOW Gallery, Greenwich Peninsula has commissioned seating for Peninsula Square with the designers Raw Edges, a public sculpture by Alex Chinneck, a number of artistic hoardings by significant illustrators, sculptures by Kalliopi Lemos and an installation on Peninsula Square from the architects pH+.
The Peninsula’s public art programme also includes 33, a pavilion in Central Park designed by Studio Weave in collaboration with HATO and illustrator Jay Cover and A Pinch in Time by Flea Folly Architects. And our ongoing partnerships involve Dance Umbrella, Greenwich + Docklands International Festival, Hemingway Design, Tatty Devine and Empathy Museum.
‘Our public art program explores interdisciplinary collaboration – architects, illustrators and designers jointly creating innovative community spaces.’
