UNITe 2018

30 June - 22 September 2018

Edita Atmaja, Clare Charles, James Cocks, Lauren Heckler, Helen Malia, Lydia Meehan, Dai Howell & Kate Mercer, Florence Moon, Hannah Morris, Dan Pritchard, Claire Prosser, Aled Simons, Laura Welsman and Ellie Young.

Devised by artists for artists, the UNITe season is a summer programme of artistic experimentation, research, critical discussions, film screenings, socials, lectures, and more.

Taking inspiration from independent art schools, studio groups and peer led activity, g39’s UNITe season transforms the exhibition venue into a busy artist studio complex and hub for creative research, training and collaboration. We invite the public in to witness the often-unseen studio activity of artistic practice and take part in discursive sessions.

This opened on Friday, and is a bit excellent. Curated by James Richards it is on until Sept 30th.
A Slight Ache focuses on work that use materials drawn from daily life but that possess a visceral emotional intensity and suggestions of ritual or performance.

The Gleaning

Join us at the first public event of UNITe 2018 for The Gleaning, the second in a series of events and artistic responses to James Richard’s Wales in Venice representation at the 2017 Venice Biennale and his recent exhibition ‘Migratory Motor Complex’ at Chapter Gallery Cardiff.

The Bad Vibes Club is an artistic research project by Matthew de Kersaint Giraudeau with Sophie Mallett. They are exploring the act of gleaning as an artistic practice, whether picking out snippets from hours of online videos, or concentrated research into specific archives. The series of events is commissioned by g39, Cardiff in partnership with Chapter Gallery and Wales In Venice with support from Art Fund.

Live Broadcast at g39 and on Resonance FM: Wednesday 18 July, 5pm
[repeated on Resonance FM Sunday 22 July 1:30pm]
Refreshments & UNITe 2018 Open Studios until 9pm

Bakudapan at Breakfast Club

Bakudapan is a study group that discuss ideas about food. They believe that food can be an instrument to speak about issues such as politics, social, gender, economy, philosophy, art, and culture. The discussion will continue via a walk to meet other Roath locals who have an interest in the connection between food and social and political issues.

Saturday 21 July, 10am – 3pm

Artist Talk - Eddie Peake

Eddie Peake’s work happens in the differences between language and nonverbal modes of communication – images, emotions, movements or sounds. His work is an often-energetic spectacle in which the body becomes a sculptural object and in which the artist plays a central role. By playing with the ambiguities of sexuality and gender categorisation, Peake’s work conveys the fluid boundaries of identity.

Places are limited, to book a place email warp@g39.org with the subject header ‘Talk: Peake’
