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. Based in Cardiff, the public space has become an integral component of the UK artist-led scene, and is a hub for the country’s creative community as well as a direct line for audiences to access Cardiff’s cultural scene. 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.

Richard Of York Gave Battle In Vain
- 4 April — 21 June 2014 *on now
Laure Prouvost overlays spoken fantastical narratives onto commonplace objects, the pace, whimsy and charm of which often contradict the images she presents. Drawing equally from the world of symbolism and metaphor, Catrin Davies & Lewis Wright refer to the Classical painting tradition of the still life in which objects stand in for a bigger narrative. The painted surface becomes a code for the viewer to crack. Catrin & Lewis appropriate this tradition by assembling still life sculptures and flooding them with pigment. Jorge Lizalde’s work looks at the way we remember and how we recall events. In his Mnemonic series, short filmic poems are created from online resources in response to participants’ early memories.
