We're really excited to be able to announce that g39 has been selected to carry out one of three Tu Fewn commissions, a DASH initiative. The commission will enable us to work with an artist as curator during 2015-16, resulting in an entire guest curated season in 2016. We'll be drawing up and circulating a call for expressions of interest soon - to make sure you hear about it sign up to our e-bulletin by clicking on the Sign up button at the top of this page.
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.
