g39 is an artist-run gallery and creative community
for the visual arts in Wales, a bridge between artists
and audiences. At the heart of g39’s activities is its
relationship with artists. From exhibition to work
placements to informal gatherings, initiating peer
introductions or realising the most ambitious of solo
exhibitions – across this spectrum of relationships our
aim is to encourage and enable every person whose
ambition it is to pursue a visual art practice.

Survey II: 10 early-career artists nominated by leading artists to create new commissions for 2021-2022 UK touring exhibition

A national partnership exhibition led by Jerwood Arts will bring together new work by 10 early-career artists, whose practice spans a wide range of disciplines from photography and moving-image to large scale sculpture and sound installation. The exhibition will now launch at g39 in Cardiff (July 2 - 11 September 2021), bringing this major presentation of work by some of the most exciting early-career artists currently making work to the Welsh capital for its premiere.

It is anticipated that many of the artists will respond to the times we are currently living through, with the works having been begun during a turbulent and fraught 2020 and further developed in an equally difficult early 2021.

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.

SURVEY II

Really pleased to be hosting SURVEY II in 2021, and to be working with @jerwoodarts and @sitegallery again. A great line up of artists from Wales, Angharad Williams, Tako Taal and our own Cinzia Mutigli alongside brilliant artists Saelia Aparicio, Tereza Červeňová, Sadé Mica, Rebecca Moss, Katarzyna Perlak, Shenece Oretha and Nicolaas Van de Lande.
