g39 are really pleased to be playing a part in Art Night’s fifth edition, Nothing Compares 2 U taking place from 18 June to 18 July 2021, by supporting a billboard as part of the Guerrilla Girls project, The Male Graze.
Their biggest UK public commission to date, The Male Graze will be part of Art Night 2021. The commission includes a website, online gig and national series of billboards, including one in Cardiff, exploring bad behavior both historically and in the present day. The work will manifest in London, Eastbourne, Dundee, Birmingham, Glasgow, Leeds, Cardiff, Warwick, Swansea and more. The billboards will be on display from 18 June to 18 July and in partnership with Art Night’s friends Compton Verney, Dundee Contemporary Arts, Glasgow Women’s Library, g39, Glynn Vivian Art Gallery, Grand Union, The Tetley and Towner Eastbourne. Art Night will also present this commission in two London sites in Shoreditch and London Bridge.
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.

g39 and its artist support programme Warp are also working alongside Artes Mundi this year to support the delivery of Studio Sessions: One-to-Ones, connecting artists in Wales with artists and curators globally including Francis McKee, Dr Gina Athena Ulysse, Prabhakar Pachpute, Beatriz Santiago Muñoz, Meiro Koizumi and Nigel Prince.

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.
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.
