Each September, 4heads presents Governors Island Art Fair. GIAF exhibits 100 individual artists from around the globe. Every year many thousands of viewers visit this extensive exhibition housed in the landmark structures of historic Governors Island.
Governors Island Art Fair is an exhibition like no other. It is organized, produced, promoted and installed entirely by working artists and volunteers. All exhibitors must transport, install and de-install their own works. Each artist or designer is expected to be present and to communicate with the viewers during GIAF.
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. The Governors Island Art Fair, Portal, 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.
