4heads presents

Governors Island Art Fair 2016

The ninth edition of GIAF will expand this September to include new installations at Castle Williams, a historic defense structure on Governors Island. A selection of artists will install works in eight of the massive building’s casemates – which later served as military prison cells – marking the first time ever that art will be featured in these spaces. This expansion of GIAF builds on last year’s use by 4heads of the underground munitions chambers at Fort Jay, driving their mission to enliven historic locations throughout the city with relevant, contemporary art. GIAF will open to the public on September 3rd —and remain open every weekend throughout the month—presenting the work of over 100 artists, from the U.S. and abroad, across Castle Williams, Colonels Row, and Fort Jay, as well as many designated outdoor locations. Don’t miss the annual island kick-off of the New York art season!
