4heads is seeking Artists to apply
for the 2nd Annual PORTAL Art Fair
4heads announces the call for artists to participate in the second edition of Portal art fair, which is slated to open to the public on May 3 at Federal Hall National Memorial, is now live and will remain active through January 2017.
The call is open to all individual artists, working in the US and abroad. Artists can submit applications at 4heads.org. Applicants are required to provide a personal statement, CV, and portfolio of works, as well as detailed plans for any site-specific installations. Artists will be selected by 4heads leadership, comprised of Nicole Laemmle, Jack Robinson, and Antony Zito, and notified regarding inclusion in February 2017.
Portal was launched in May 2016 at Federal Hall on Wall Street as a sister fair to GIAF, offering artists a new platform through which to present their work and engage collectors during the highly active Frieze Week. Portal reflects 4heads mission to enliven and bring attention to little-known historic sites throughout the city, while building a network of support and collaboration among today’s artists.
“Portal is an opportunity for us to continue to support artists that have previously shown at GIAF, and to also bring new artists into our community. With Portal , we are particularly interested in engaging with the spectacular architecture of Federal Hall, reimagining it for both locals, who are little aware of it, and those visiting New York,” said Antony Zito, 4heads co-founder. “So much of what’s happening during Frieze Week is about the traditional white cube. Our vision is to present something entirely different. Something that explores and presents contemporary art within the context of history, as it relates to art but also culture more broadly.”
If you are an artist, designer or gallery and would like to submit an application please proceed to the proper page and read our Submissions Policies and FAQs. We do not accept submissions by mail.
