Maiden Voyage

JeeYoung Lee

23 Jun – 25 Sep 2022

For NOW Gallery’s 2022 Art Commission, Korean artist JeeYoung Lee has created an environment inspired by memories, dreams, emotions, and her personal experience. The artist reinterprets her psychological landscape and thoughts into this environment. JeeYoung hopes that these origami objects, the boat, planes and swans floating in a Gingko leaf sea, will trigger thoughts, memories and give an opportunity for people to harness their own memories and rediscover their own stories.

My Head is a Jungle

Manjit Thapp

23 Jul – 31 Oct 2021

NOW Gallery’s Young Artist Commission for 2021, My Head Is A Jungle sees Birmingham-born illustrator Manjit Thapp transform the exhibition space into a three-dimensional maze-like structure, with a large fluorescent red sun hanging above. From overgrowing thoughts, tangled feelings, suppressed fears and wild growth, Thapp’s work creates a fragmented narrative, acting like pages in a diary and documenting the contemporary female experience.


Nicholas Daley

18 May – 4 Jul 2021

Regarded as one of the UK’s most pioneering young fashion designers, Nicholas Daley is known for his use of beautiful woven fabrics and fine tailoring.

For NOW Gallery’s 2021 Fashion Commission, Daley has transformed the exhibition space into an immersive, multi-sensory installation that celebrates the coming together of his multicultural Jamaican-Scottish roots with his passion for music. 

Intended as a welcoming space for the local community and visitors alike to come, slow down and dwell, the exhibition is a marriage of his three core values of community, culture and craftsmanship.

Planar 1/1 

Secret 7″

4th Nov – 3rd Dec 2020

Major artists customise Rega Planar 1 turntables for humanitarian aid charity Help Refugees.

Bid on one of a kind turntables by Sir Paul Smith, Morag Myerscough, Alison Goldfrapp, Haroon Mirza, Rana Begum & more.

The return of Planar 1/1 is sure to delight art collectors and record enthusiasts around the world. Using a white Rega Planar 1 as a canvas, each artist has pushed the boundaries of the open brief, repurposing and reconditioning the turntable into a novel piece of art.

Sir Paul Smith and Morag Myerscough have used acrylic to create turntables featuring their signature bright patterns. British artist Haroon Mirza has incorporated lighting into his design in homage to Gysin and Burroughs’ Dreammachine in his turntable ‘A Dreammachine of Sorts’, while Tony Hung, who has previously used neon for Blur’s 2015 album Magic Whip, has used the material in his unique design, ‘3 A.M. Somewhere Out of Beaumont’.

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.’
