11th Annual Governors Island Art Fair
International Deadline: May 28, 2018 – Seeking
independent artists worldwide working in all disciplines; Painting,
Photography, Sculpture, Installation, Video, and Sound Art.
Submit your work for the 2018 Governors Island Art Fair opening this
September. GIAF – New York’s largest independent exhibition – will once
again feature scores of artists of exceptional talent, and each will be
awarded an exhibition room or large outdoor space in the historic and
beautifully dilapidated buildings of Colonels Row. The lines between
artwork and its environment are blurred across the lawns and landmark
houses of bucolic Governors Island.
Founded by 4heads, a group of New York artists, GIAF champions an art fair model that puts the artists first.
Once selected by 4heads jury, your exhibition space is free. The
entire massive event is free to the general public. And as an emerging
or established artist, you are free to present your work, your way, at
this acclaimed independent art fair in New York City. Because 4heads
works hard to keep artists’ costs to a bare minimum, gallery scouts,
journalists and collectors know that this is where to find the freshest
talent, and they come back every year to see what’s been discovered.
Many past GIAF artists have launched their art careers here.
Heads up! – 4heads is specifically seeking outdoor artists working in all disciplines.
Fair Dates: Every Weekend in September 2018.
Application Fee: $45 – No Additional Charges.
