Exhibit your art, your way, for free – in New York’s Largest Independent Exhibition – Portal: Governors Island, formerly known as Governor’s Island Art Fair. At Portal:GI, each artist is free to self-curate a full room of their work in the historic buildings on this picturesque, almost surreal, former military base in the middle of NY Harbor.
Every weekend in September since 2008, 4heads has brought Portal:GI to Governors Island, just minutes from Manhattan and Brooklyn by scenic ferry ride. Portal:GI grants single exhibition rooms to individual artists from around the globe. Every year, more than 40,000 viewers visit this extensive exhibit housed in the landmark structures of New York’s favorite island getaway. Portal:GI is organized, produced, promoted, and installed entirely by working artists and volunteers. Exhibitors in Portal:GI are responsible for transporting, installing, and de-installing their own work. Artists are welcomed to be present as much as possible in order to communicate with art lovers and collectors, and to take advantage of the valuable relationships that form over the course of this series of weekends. Attendance is by no means required, but artists who accept the invitation to be on site, gain the most out of the experience and meet many collectors, curators and journalists.
