MOWALOLA : SILENT MADNESS
Nov 28, 2019 - Jan 19, 2020
Silent Madness is an immersive installation that marries Mowalola’s unique Nigerian punk-inspired aesthetic with her passion for musical expression. The result is a surrealist stage setting emerging from an explosion of colour accompanied by a multi-channel soundtrack curated by the visitor.

SLICES OF TIME : EMMANUELLE MOUREAUX
Feb 5 - Sep 27, 2020 FINAL WEEK
Emmanuelle Moureaux has been seducing audiences with her colourful installations from Paris to Tokyo. The complexity and delightful aesthetic fills space with cut out coloured paper to create a world where the essence of every carefully considered colour can be appreciated. 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. Each layer of numbers reflects the now, the past and the future, the exhibition will be a round representation of the earth floating in the gallery space. A moment, a slice of time. Creating dates to be acknowledged and a moment to think about ourselves in contemplation with the now.

Oct 14 - Nov 1, 2020
Private view Tue Oct 13 6pm - 9pm
NOW Gallery will be hosting the seventh and final Secret 7” exhibition, with leading names from the worlds of music and art collaborating to produce 700 one-of-a-kind 7” singles to benefit Help Refugees, hosted in partnership with Columbia Records and Camden Town Brewery.
 
Secret 7”, the much-loved anonymous charity record sleeve sale, will return for its seventh event following a hiatus in 2019.NOW Gallery will be transformed with a display of 700 records each with individual sleeve designs.
 
The records are created by pressing seven iconic tracks onto 7” vinyl, with each track being limited to just 100 copies.
 
Creatives around the world – from talented newcomers to some of the world’s greatest artists – submit sleeve artwork for the 700 records creating one-of-a-kind collectables that appeal to hardcore fans, record collectors and art connoisseurs alike. Sleeve design submissions are now open: www.secret-7.com. The 700 records will be exhibited at NOW Gallery before they are made available to buy. The identities of their creators remain a secret until the record is in their new owner’s hands. Throughout its history, Secret 7” has attracted a wide variety of influential contributors. Participating musicians have included The Rolling Stones, Elton John, Lorde and Public Enemy, while artwork has been provided by the likes of Sir Peter Blake, Yoko Ono, Sir Paul Smith, and Jake and Dinos Chapman. The 2020 tracks span a variety of genres and 54 years of music history, from all-time classics from Aretha Franklin and Bob Dylan to more recent releases from Koffee and Vampire Weekend. Foo Fighters celebrate their 25th anniversary by taking their story back to the beginning as they provide their official debut single This Is A Call. This will be the final Secret 7” event in its current guise.
