Governors Island
New York, NY
Building 12
Sunday, July 1, 2012

4heads summons independent artists working anywhere in any discipline to apply for the 2012 Governors Island Art Fair. Every year, more than 100 artists of exceptional talent and vision are chosen to show their art in this annual exhibition, activating the landmark architecture of New York’s Governors Island, a site that welcomed 448,000 visitors last summer. The Governors Island Art Fair provides a world-class venue to great artists, unknown and well-known, at a low cost. Founded by 4heads, a group of working artists based in New York City, this event champions a new model for art fairs by putting the artists and the visitors first.

Basing their decisions solely on the merit of the art itself, the 4heads judging panel selects over 100 artists to participate. Each artist gets a room in one of Governors Island’s historic structures to transform into an exhibit of their own design. Thousands of visitors (art world professionals and regular folk alike) flock to this island oasis across the New York Harbor to witness the results each year.

The exhibition space is free. Admission to the fair is free. Even the ferry ride to the island is free. And that frees up artists to present their art their way in a unique venue framed by the architecture of New York City's Governors Island. Fair Dates: Every Saturday and Sunday in September 2012
