UNIT(e) Artist/Curator Talks

23 August
We are pleased to invite Georgie Grace back to g39 to talk to us about her practice.
Georgie’s work, using moving image, looks at technology and its relationship with the uncanny and the sublime.
We worked with Georgie two years ago on the Three Phase project. With the support of g39, Jerwood Visual Arts and Eastside Projects she developed new work that was exhibited here at g39 and at the other partner Venues in London and Birmingham.

26th August
Claire Feeley will be joining us to talk about her work and upcoming projects.
Claire Feeley is a curator and writer based in London. Her curatorial practice includes exhibition-making, as well as collaborative projects combining art, architecture and performance. As co-founder of tillwehavebuilt she has realised commissions with artists including Becky Beasley, David Raymond Conroy, Richard Healy, Mary Hurrell, Simon Martin, Ursula Mayer, Dennis McNulty, Francesco Pedraglio and Cara Tolmie. Forthcoming exhibition projects include collaborations with Seoul Museum of Art, Korea; and Art Tower Mito, Japan.

It Was Never Going To Be Straightforward

It Was Never Going To Be Straightforward is a compendium of the first 13 years of the g39 project. We've just realised that g39 will be 20 in 2018, so we need to start working on the next book soon! This one 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 a very different Cardiff city centre. 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.
