Distance and closeness. An arm's reach apart. At least. A breath apart. Minimum. People come together and people move apart. Bumper cars with a no-bumping rule. This show brings together a collection of people. A collision of people.



The second group from the g39 Fellowship programme - Becca+Clare, Freya Dooley, Rebecca Gould, Rhiannon Lowe, Will Roberts, Neasa Terry - present a collection of new projects, ideas and proposals for works. Some of them have been intermittently based at g39 during the last year as we have navigated different circumstances together. The show is a mixture of live work, work completed over the last two years and projects that were paused through these extraordinary times.

Days passed and the disconnected weeks seemed to repeat. Things that happened last year feel simultaneously close to us and distant. Long term and short term memories feel compressed, crashing together in the face of uncertainty. Planning for anything felt futile as those plans got re-drafted and re-written again and again. We seem to have no time as well as an excess of it, but no structures to hold it. Zoom crashes the distances between us, the gaps between things. Idling. It runs out and around us. Things take longer and any sense of routine is still fluid.

The show is not, thankfully, about these extraordinary times. It is framed by them, changed by them but not separate or apart. Some of the artists have spent time working from home. Homes that become strange villages where different activities have to co-exist with life and work and change.

A Call-Out for Trustees -
g39 needs your help.

3 December 2021 - 28 January 2022

g39 needs your help.
Mae angen eich help ar g39

g39 is home to Wales’ largest artist-run gallery and creative community for the visual arts. Established in Cardiff in 1998, g39 became a charity in 2019 and works as a bridge between communities, the public and artists. Artists are at the heart of g39’s activities. From residencies to training and mentoring, informal gatherings and realising the most ambitious of both Welsh and international exhibitions. Our aim is to encourage and enable every person whose ambition it is to pursue a visual art practice.

We are looking to recruit new Trustees to help steer g39 during the next part of its development. We are seeking a broad range of input from people with lived experience of different communities in Wales.



We are looking for input, skills or experience in the bits that help us run - accountancy, commercial property, charity governance, business development & HR - as well as the bits that make us tick - contemporary art in Wales, media, design and marketing and community development. We are keen to increase our bilingual working, felly, os ydych chi'n gweithio yn y Gymraeg neu'n dysgu, byddem wrth ein bodd yn clywed gennych!

Support
g39

There are lots of ways you can support g39 and our programme,
without it costing you anything.



We’ve joined easyfundraising. Basically, if you shop online but through their portal, they donate a % to us. From Screwfix to ebay, Ethical Superstore to durex you can do your bit. Or if you’re driving to Cardiff and are going to pay for parking, why not book our carpark on Justpark with us?

You can donate at any time too through our new Donorfy account, or tapping a card on the donation point at g39, or just dropping some coins in the donation boxes next time you visit. It’s always uncomfortable asking for donations when there are so many many things to support out there - but all of this helps keep our resources and support programmes free for those that need them.

The current exhibition
runs until 18/12/21


This website was born back in 2006, and although it’s wearing some fancy new fonts it still struggles sometimes.

If there are problems, let us know and we’ll try to fix them while we fundraise for a new one.

g39 is a registered charity, Reg no. 1181492, and we rely on a lot of different helping hands. If you want to support us, please donate, or you can help by visiting the market. We are always grateful for volunteer support too.

If you want to engage with us in Welsh you can switch from any page by clicking on the link above. If you're a learner, bydd newid rhwng y ddau yn ffordd dda o ymarfer - flipping between the two is a good way to practice. You can contact us in either English neu Gymraeg. Sign up to be kept up to date by post or email.

warp Library

When we're open again (!) the warp Library is open, a de-instututional resource for all. The collection mainly houses artist books, arts-related reference books, zines and pamphlets. These span from the socio-political to the experimental, from 60s avant-garde retrospectives to contemporary exhibition publications; and hopefully everything in between. This in an ever-developing, growing collection.
