4heads presents

Governors Island Art Fair 2017

The 10th annual Governors Island Art Fair – New York’s largest independent exhibition – opens Saturday, September 2nd, featuring 100 artists in 100 individual spaces – located in and outside of the grand, historic homes on Colonels Row and this year, for the first time ever, in the long-shuttered spaces inside of Liggett Hall. These landmark structures display varying effects of the ravages of time, providing artists with a fertile environment for creative experimentation.

“Gems among the ruins” (The New York Times)
“It’s a lot to absorb, so… go early” (The New York Post)
“A welcome, art-filled escape” (Artnet.com)
“One of NYC’s best art fairs” (Time Out New York)

4headed Pioneers

When 4heads launched GIAF in 2008, this small group of artists were among the first to see Governors Island as an overlooked gem. In fact at that time, most New Yorkers had no idea what the island was, much less where to spot it on a map. Ten years later Governors Island is a standard part of the New York vernacular, and 4heads still remains committed to activating these sites every season, giving voice to today’s working artists and to the history of our great city.

– Colonels Row

– Liggett Hall

Governors Island, New York Harbor

Weekends
September 2 – October 1
11am – 6pm

Admission is free.
