Everything.
All At Once.
At The Same Time.

3 November 2018 - 19 January 2019

Closed 16/12/18 - 09/01/18


The central exhibition of the season features new works from William Roberts, Sam Venables, Ruffles aka Clare Charles & Becca Thomas, Gaia Persico and Cecile Johnson Soliz. The artists have each found ways to continue their studio practice alongside employment, whether it is by borrowing props, employing fabricators, creating work in the gaps between jobs or blurring the line between their practice and their jobs. The exhibition is less about short attention spans or the battle between distraction and focus; rather it's about uncovering our ability to absorb, assess and understand multiple streams of thought simultaneously.

g39 Fellowship Artist Announcement
2 October 2018
The g39 Fellowship is a new initiative that fosters, extends and reinforces a peer group of artists over a five-year programme. It forms part of the Freelands Artist Programme alongside equivalent initiatives organised by PS2 (Paragon Studios/Project Space) in Belfast, Site Gallery in Sheffield and Talbot Rice Gallery at the University of Edinburgh.

We’re pleased to announce that the first five artists we’ll be working with on this programme are: Kelly Best, Ian Watson, Fern Thomas, Neasa Terry and Jennifer Taylor. This is the first of four Fellowship cohorts, that we will be working with over a period of five years. The artists will take part in a structured programme of studio practice and self-directed research at g39 over a period of two years.
The Fellowship will comprise an intensive series of workshops and training, contact time with mentors, visiting artists, curators and g39 staff. We’ll also be organising guest speakers and lectures, group peer critique sessions, plus away days, research visits, remote networking and social activity. In addition the Freelands Artist Programme will also organise a symposium annually and an exhibition opportunity at the end of each two-year cohort for all participants. By the end of the programme, twenty artists will have participated in the g39 Fellowship.

g39 is pleased to host the tour of Jerwood Charitable Foundation's major new exhibition presenting new works by 15 early-career artists from across the UK. Survey includes Chris Alton, Simeon Barclay, Hazel Brill, Flo Brooks, Emma Cousin, Joe Fletcher Orr, Tom Goddard, Ashley Holmes, Lindsey Mendick, Nicole Morris, Milly Peck, Anna Raczynski, Will Sheridan, Rae-Yen Song and Frank Wasser. Survey provides its largest review of contemporary art practice in its 12 years of programming, spanning a breadth of disciplines. Survey takes a non-institutional approach to selection with 35 mid-career artists - including Ryan Gander, Andy Holden and Rachel Maclean - nominating the most promising new UK artists working today. Finalised from a long-list of 72 artists, narrowed down to 15 by a panel including Jerwood Visual Arts’ Head of Programme Sarah Williams.
