NOW Gallery is pleased to announce that it will celebrate London's diverse creative landscape in a new cross-cultural installation, Home Affairs, running 20th August – 4th September 2015.
The exhibition is a collaboration between furniture designer Yinka Ilori, fashion designer Christine Mhando of London-based CHiCHiA and creative consultant Arieta Mujay. Together they will create four theatrical, visually compelling conceptual spaces, brought to life with curated film, archival footage and performance. Framed by the language of traditional Nigerian & Swahili parables, the spaces will be filled with thought-provoking furniture, indigenous plants, designed objects, garments and wallpapers inspired by bespoke Khanga textiles, with visitors encouraged to navigate and explore.
The installation will be further enlivened with illustrations by Lulu Kitololo and spoken word performances by Project Tribe's Bazaar ••
