Support Hyperallergic’s independent arts journalism.
Hyperallergic is pleased to once again continue its media partnership with the Governors Island Art Fair, New York’s largest independent art fair. We are excited to present this open call for artists to apply for a room during this year’s series.
Governors Island Art Fair is seeking independent artists working in all disciplines (painting, photography, sculpture, installation, video, sound, performance art, and more) to apply.
Every year, more than 100 artists are chosen to showcase their art every weekend in September amongst the sprawling and historic architecture of New York’s Governors Island, one of city’s most popular attractions for tourists and locals alike.
Founded by 4heads, a group of working artists based in New York City, this event champions a new model for art fairs by putting the artists and the visitors first.
Things you should know:
- The artists’ exhibition space is free
- Admission to the fair is free
- Even the ferry ride to the island is free
This accessibility frees up artists, both unknown and well-known, to present their work their way, at no cost, and in a unique venue. Entering its seventh year, we invite you apply to the Governors Island Art Fair — sure to be the biggest and best one yet.
The application deadline is June 13. There is a submission fee of $35, but those accepted will be provided free space.
Apply online at 4heads.org/apply.
