Every year The 4heads hotwire an abandoned military barracks on historic Governors Island in beautiful New York Harbor - launching a sizable exposition of independent artists and galleries known as the Governors Island Art Fair. Entering its 3rd year this fall, this extensive exhibition once again features an exciting and diverse selection of artists from around the world. As working artists living in New York City, The 4heads Collective takes a unique swing at the art fair tradition with its "hands-off" curatorial technique. At the Governors Island Art Fair, over 100 independent artists are selected solely on the merit of their work, and, once chosen, each is given a room where they are set loose to create an environment of their own design. The 4heads Collective chooses the artists - the artists choose the work. This year the Fair will present a new section with select galleries showcasing their featured artists. By including these exceptional galleries Fair organizers hope to foster a constructive dialogue between artists and their representatives.
