It Was Never Going To Be Straightforward is a compendium of the first 13 years of the g39 project. The book charts a rambling route through g39’s history from the first exhibition that opened on 3 July 1998 to the last that closed on 2 July 2011. It marks the years that the project was based in Wyndham Arcade in Cardiff city centre. It Was Never Going To Be Straightforward contains some of the projects we made happen in those thirteen years, alongside new articles and artist commissions. Drawing its inspiration from the Art and Society series published in the 1970s by The Welsh Arts Council, the book gives an insight into some of the things that drive g39 – our ethos, our influences and our ambitions.
