London-based NOW Gallery has announced a new collaboration with Nicholas Daley, with the British designer hosting an immersive exhibition later this year. Titled “Return to Slygo,” the exhibition looks at regular themes throughout Daley’s work, including his Jamaican-Scottish roots and the influence of music, as well as the values of “community, culture, and craftmanship.”
During the exhibition, the gallery floor will be covered in a bespoke woven carpet, while a backdrop will be created from a moodboard of different cultural references. These references will include archive imagery, family photographs and classic reggae club T-shirts.
Other highlights of the exhibition include a collaboration with illustrator Gaurab Thakali, creating large banners, as well as a space for knitting with upcycled yarns and somewhere for visitors to create their own album covers. The collaboration with Thakali will also extend into a range of limited-edition merchandise.
The collaboration with Nicholas Daley is the latest immersive fashion exhibition from NOW Gallery. The Greenwich gallery has previously worked with other U.K.-based designers including Molly Goddard, Charles Jeffrey LOVERBOY and Mowalola.
“Return to Slygo” is scheduled to open at NOW Gallery on December 2 this year, and will run until January 24.
