NOW Gallery and Design District collaborate to present a series of pop up exhibitions spaces featuring the practices of three diverse visual artists. The takeover celebrates the launch of Greenwich Peninsula’s exciting cultural quarter, Design District, a new permanent home for the creative industries.

HUMAN STORIES: THE AFRO SURREALIST VINCE FRASER As part of ‘Art Block’, NOW Gallery presents the 5th iteration of the annual Human Stories series, celebrating the work of British designer and ‘Artivist’ Vince Fraser. Human Stories: The Afro Surrealist will present three large scaled digital artworks exploring the intersection between African diasporic futurism, techno cultures and spatial constructs. IMAGES OF BROKEN LIGHT: A Retrospective and New Works CHARLES EMERSON ​​Charles Emerson’s work, has a hallucinatory mystery about his subjects, they may be flowers, or mountains or protesters - they all have been layered and sublimated to produce an image which is almost a breath of a thing. Poised in the frame, a hint or cloud of an object, rephrasing it, so you have to think about it in a different way. MEMORIES OF GIGABYTES LISA WOLF for Kvadrat and Design District Memories of Gigabytes is a site-specific work that transfers memories of digital spaces and personal experiences related to distinct places into physical space. Lisa Wolf focuses on exploring textures, materials, weight, temperature and softness - things we need to experience in a physical environment. Exhibition runs 15 Sept - 17 Oct 2021
