EXHIBITIONS AT NOW GALLERY
Slices of Time Emmanuelle Moureaux
5 Feb – 19 Apr 2020
Emmanuelle Moureaux has been seducing audiences with her colourful installations from Paris to Tokyo. NOW Gallery, as part of its on-going Design Commission, selected Moureaux to present a large-scale installation in the UK for the first time. Inspired by the gallery’s location on the Greenwich Peninsula, near to the Meridian, marking time and composed of layers of numbers in 100 shades of colours and white, the installation expresses the flow of time.
ABOUT NOW GALLERY
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.’
