Join us in celebrating 4heads 15th Anniversary year on the island and see what 2022 Session II Artists in Residence have been working on for Portal Exhibition weekend. 4heads invited pairs of indoor, outdoor, and art education cohort artists to be a part of a collaboration-based fall residency/incubator, creating site-specific environments with the theme of “At Rest & In Motion” as a jumping off point for inspiration and exploration that culminates in this Exhibition. Collaborating artists include:

More Outdoor Artists announced soon…
4heads is the New York City non-profit organization created by artists for artists that has produced Portal: Governors Island (formerly known as Governors Island Art Fair) since 2008. Touted as New York’s largest independent exhibition, Portal: GI welcomes over 40,000 visitors annually in New York Harbor.
Our mission as an artist-created organization, is to cultivate a supportive community by hosting free large-scale art fairs and studio residency programs for under-represented artists, and by tailoring arts education programs for underserved youth. With a strong focus on artistic excellence and inclusion, we revitalize historic spaces with contemporary art, as we continue to enrich and expand our creative community: a socially, economically, and culturally diverse reflection of New York City itself.
4heads is a certified 501(c)(3) non-profit arts organization.
Help us keep New York’s Largest Independent Exhibitions alive. We appreciate your support. Every dollar counts.
We have lots to do and could always use a hand – and a lot of it is educational and fun. Get involved with a diverse group of artists and volunteers working together to support local culture.
For questions about volunteering or interning, please email us.
4heads is on the look-out for partners interested in supporting an art fair unlike any other. Portal: Governors Island and all other 4heads programs are managed entirely by artists with the mission of allowing other artists and galleries to present their work as they see fit. It is free to the public and receives thousands of visitors daily.
This is a unique opportunity to receive high visibility and to demonstrate cultural responsibility by supporting the local New York arts community.
