Portal, a new fair featuring approximately 40 artists, will open to the public on May 4 at historic Federal Hall National Memorial at 26 Wall Street. Developed by 4heads, Inc.—the nonprofit behind Governors Island Art Fair (GIAF)—the fair builds on the organization’s mission to provide new platforms for emerging artists, from across the U.S. and abroad, to engage with the public, arts professionals, and collectors, while highlighting historically significant landmarks across the city. Following the success of the eighth edition of GIAF in September 2015, 4heads, Inc. decided to create a new fair that will leverage art world activity in New York City in early May to support the work of young and emerging artists.
for immediate release:
Announcing Brontide, an exhibition of new paintings by Hannah Hill on view at the 8th annual Governor’s Island Art Fair.
In this series, Hill presents paintings that probe the nature of memory through splinters of personal mythology. New York City non-profit group 4Heads, who organizes the fair, says “[Hill’s] work, haunting of domestic life and ties, is preoccupied with memory, things that may or may not have happened – skirting violence and the anonymous, somewhere between loneliness and consolation.”
This September come explore the abandoned military barracks of Colonel’s Row on Governor’s Island. One hundred rooms feature painting, photography, sculpture, installation, video and sound art by artists from around the globe. New York’s largest independent exhibition is organized by the not-for-profit group 4Heads.
