g39 is a dynamic artist-led organisation for contemporary art in Wales. Part gallery, part community and part resource, it is a welcoming space for audiences to experience a selection of Wales’ most exciting and relevant contemporary art.

Following relocation in late 2011 it is now one of the largest spaces for contemporary visual art in Wales, with 6,700 sq ft of open plan exhibition space.

Jerwood Encounters: 3-Phase: Kelly Best

  • 2 — 31 October 2015

3-Phase offers two early career artists the opportunity to make new work
which is being exhibited through five exhibitions across the collaborating galleries. Across the year-long programme, each artist has access to ongoing curatorial and practical support from the partners.

Kelly Best’s practice is rooted in drawing, through which she unpicks the relationship between form, perspective, colour and void. At Jerwood Space, Kelly will reconfigure her ambitious new work Velum, a large scale wall structure onto which the artist has realised a ten metre long pencil drawing. The bespoke, curved, sculptural surface covered by the artist’s repeated gesture of a pale vertical line over a black background demonstrates a powerful perspectival effect.

Jerwood Encounters: 3-Phase: Georgie Grace

  • 13 November — 12 December 2015

3-Phase offers two early career artists the opportunity to make new work
which is being exhibited through five exhibitions across the collaborating galleries. Across the year-long programme, each artist has access to ongoing curatorial and practical support from the partners.

Georgie Grace’s practice occupies a space somewhere between still and moving image. Her interest in the intangible quality of digital reading and the shifting surfaces of the screen are questioned through her silent film works comprising found imagery and text. At Jerwood Space, Georgie will present a new edit of her film "the machine is almost pure magic". The film seamlessly knits together grainy, monochrome stills though a text narration – a contemporary voice that speaks of aspiration, desire and utopian ideals, but also their perils.
