UNIT(e). Every year we transform g39 into a space for production, research, critical discussions, film screenings, socials, lectures, and more. Taking its model from various independent art schools and summer schools, the gallery becomes a busy studio hub for the participating artists. Once a week we invite the public in to see artists’ work in progress, the background noise, the often unseen studio activity of their practice. We also have a rich and varied programme of visiting artists and curators who deliver talks, workshops and one-to-one sessions with studio holders. The season concludes with an open studio event.
UNIT(e) has been a growing evolving project within our programme over the past three years. The UNIT(e) 2017 programme will be making a unique connection with the Wales In Venice invigilation team, international participants and a public spaces residency running in parallel.
This year, UNIT(e) is twice as long as previous years, and hopefully at least twice as warm, running through the summer months, from 21 April until 9 September.
