g39 BOOK!! / It Was Never Going To Be Straightforward.
BUY IT NOW for 19.95!!
We are very pleased to announce the launch of g39's new publication It Was Never Going To Be Straight Forward 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 g39 made happen in those thirteen years, alongside artist commissions by James Green, Llyr Williams, matthews & allen and new articles by David Trigg (Frieze, Art Monthly), Mel Brimfield and Dave Ball. Drawing its inspiration from the Art and Society series published in the 1970s by The Welsh Arts Council, It Was Never Going To Be Straightforward gives an insight into some of the things that drive g39 - our ethos, our influences and our ambitions.
A limited edition of 100 copies have been printed with a special spine featuring an artwork by Angharad P Jones, and cut-out g39 insert. It Was Never Going To Be Straightforward is available on the shop section of www.g39.org and at the gallery (accepted payments include cash, cheques payable to 'CTA', and Paypal).
