Indulge your curiosity as you explore the abandoned military barracks of Governors Island Art Fair, 100 singular rooms of painting, photography, sculpture, installation, video, sound and performance art. Run by artists, for artists, New York’s largest independent exhibition enters its 6th year this fall. Once again GIAF organizers, 4heads, have sifted through a sea of creative proposals from New York and around the world, giving 100 of the best a full room each, in which to wreak havoc as they see fit. GIAF also features independent galleries–encouraging the dialogue between artists and art dealers. And outside on the grass, live music, large-scale sculpture, food, drink and more. Can’t wait until September? 4heads’ Artists in Residence keep their studio doors open all summer long on the island. Get your culture fix on Governors Island – there’s enough art here to start a new country.
Governors Island Art Fair is organized by 4heads, a New York-based arts organization that specializes in developing unique environments for the purposes of exhibition, education and artistic creation. 4heads’ programs are tailored to serve the under-resourced, attracting hidden culture and fostering community through collaborative expression.
