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.

Talk // Sgwrs: Katrina Palmer

28 May 2021

We are really pleased to host Katrina Palmer for a talk this Summer. Friday 28th May 2021, between 6-8pm

* Book Here *

Katrina Palmer is Associate Professor of Fine Art at the Ruskin, and co-course leader of the MFA Programme; she is a Fellow of Lady Margaret Hall.

Palmer works with storytelling, distributing fragmented elements of narrative across found sites, audio environments, printed matter and performance. The site of writing and the process of attempting to materialise, edit and reformulate ideas is often articulated through the work. Attentive to uncertainties, bodily vulnerabilities and insecure environments, these situated narratives invite the audience to consider objects that are indicated, but not fully present.

Closed to the public at the moment. We're working on it!
At the moment we are re-building this website while it is live. Please bear with us.

sign up to be kept up to date by post or email. g39 is a charity and we rely on a lot of different helping hands. If you want to support us, please donate, or you can invest in our future by visiting the market. We are always grateful for volunteer support too.

If you want to engage with us in welsh you can switch to Cymraeg from any page by clicking on the link above. If you're a learner, flipping between the two is a good way to practice! Contact us in either welsh or English if you come across glitches while we're still fixing things.

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.
