Clare Charles/ Becca Thomas <i>All Back To Carol`s</i>, 2015

All At Once.
At The Same Time.

3 November 2018 - 19 January 2019

The central exhibition of the season features new works from William Roberts, Sam Venables, Ruffles aka Clare Charles & Becca Thomas, Gaia Persico and Cecile Johnson Soliz. The artists have each found ways to continue their studio practice alongside employment, whether it is by borrowing props, employing fabricators, creating work in the gaps between jobs or blurring the line between their practice and their jobs. The exhibition is less about short attention spans or the battle between distraction and focus; rather it's about uncovering our ability to absorb, assess and understand multiple streams of thought simultaneously.

g39 Fellowship Artist Announcement
2 October 2018
The g39 Fellowship is a new initiative that fosters, extends and reinforces a peer group of artists over a five-year programme. It forms part of the Freelands Artist Programme alongside equivalent initiatives organised by PS2 (Paragon Studios/Project Space) in Belfast, Site Gallery in Sheffield and Talbot Rice Gallery at the University of Edinburgh.

We’re pleased to announce that the first five artists we’ll be working with on this programme are: Kelly Best, Ian Watson, Fern Thomas, Neasa Terry and Jennifer Taylor. This is the first of four Fellowship cohorts, that we will be working with over a period of five years. The artists will take part in a structured programme of studio practice and self-directed research at g39 over a period of two years.
The Fellowship will comprise an intensive series of workshops and training, contact time with mentors, visiting artists, curators and g39 staff. We’ll also be organising guest speakers and lectures, group peer critique sessions, plus away days, research visits, remote networking and social activity. In addition the Freelands Artist Programme will also organise a symposium annually and an exhibition opportunity at the end of each two-year cohort for all participants. By the end of the programme, twenty artists will have participated in the g39 Fellowship.

The 2018 Jarman Award

Enjoy a screening of works from the artists at the forefront of experimentation in filmmaking today- the shortlist of this year’s Film London Jarman Award. Larry Achiampong & David Blandy, Jasmina Cibic, Lawrence Lek, Daria Martin, Hardeep Pandhal and Margaret Salmon present innovative, entertaining and diverse films that tackle the world’s big topics.

Inspired by visionary filmmaker Derek Jarman, the Award recognises and supports artists working with moving image. The selection from this year’s shortlist once again illustrates the spirit of imagination and inventiveness within the medium, with works that explore both new practices in relation to digital image making and fresh
approaches to traditional filmmaking.

The Jarman Award screening is part of Everything. All At Once. At The Same Time, a series of events and exhibitions at g39.

Megan Winstone and Red Flannel Films – Talk

Red Flannel Films grew out of the South Wales Women's Film Group - the first women's film organisation in Wales established in the early 1980s. 40 years on, Megan Winstone is documenting a series of interviews in ladies’ toilets of nightclubs and pubs. From making new friends to distributing sanitary products to offering a place of refuge, these are spaces of opportunity and togetherness.

Saturday 24 November, 6-8pm

DKUK / Daniel Kelly – Talk

At DKUK Salon, paying clients get their hair cut in front of art. Realised by artist/hairdresser Daniel Kelly, DKUK combines the commercial framework of a hairdressing business with a space for showing and developing work. This fused environment of art and hairdressing prompts more dialogue and mediation than a standard cultural experience.

Friday 30 November, 6-8pm

Christmas Closing

End the year with artists past and present, g39 and Warp staff and volunteers, spiced wine, music and mince pies.
