Celebrating NOW Galleryâ€™s first birthday and Alex Chinneckâ€™s Straight jacket star jumps sculpture.
NOW Gallery is celebrating its one year anniversary with a unique art-party themed NOW Later – a free evening of interactive art installations, short films and music.
In collaboration with onedotzero and WorldWide FM, NOW Gallery will present an evening of audiovisual interventions that question perceptions of the city and discuss themes of urbanism.
New online radio station Worldwide FM curate the evening's soundtrack, including a live music performance by South African electronica and hip hop music collective Christian Tiger School and DJ set by Will LV (Brownswood).
onedotzero will create a moving light based response to Alex Chinneck’s sculptural installation Straight jacket star jumps in collaboration with DCLX lighting suppliers. The coiled, steel electricity pylon that fills the central gallery space will be subjected to a dramatic transformation, harnessing the energy on display and translating it into a play of shadows and light. Both the space and the sculpture will be animated with an array of sensitive lighting that reinforces and champions this wonderful and playful work.
The interventions continue in the Tom Dixon-designed penthouse above the gallery with a series of screen-based games and standalone interactive artworks and objects curated by onedotzero to complement the stunning design and reinterpret the intended experience of the specific living spaces. Featured artists include Cinimod Studio, Richard Hogg, ustwo, David Hedberg and Robin Baumgarten.
Plus, NOW Gallery’s boardroom will be transformed beyond recognition with a brand new interactive acoustic installation by the multi award winning composer, sound designer, artist and audio specialist Nick Ryan.
The gallery’s in-house cinema, NOW Cinema, will present a 30-minute onedotzero curated programme of short films and animations by innovative artists and filmmakers. The programme will explore our fascination with the city via an eclectic series of filmic responses to urban environments and fast-paced city living. Includes shorts by Universal Everything, Blue Zoo, weareseventeen, Matthias Hoegg and Hi-Organic.
Beautifully illustrated looping clips of architectural environments, from futuristic cityscapes to humorous real-life stories. With work by Carl Burton, deepblue networks, Guillaume Kurkdjian and Valeriya Sanchillo aka. Waneella.
