OPENING RECEPTION • May 3rd • 6-9pm
Sponsored by: Austin Eastciders & The Sweet Beet
Portal, featuring dozens of artists, will be open to the public May 3-8 in the SOHO neighborhood of NYC at 435 Broome Street, NYC (between Broadway and Crosby).
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.
The vision is to provide individuals with a new opportunity to develop and present their work, building on their successes at GIAF and nurturing continued support for their practices.
As with GIAF, featured artists exhibit for free, and no admission to the fair will be charged, to encourage a wide array of individuals to participate as either exhibitor or viewer. Portal provides a new opportunity to experience the work of dozens of artists in a week teeming with activity, and to reignite interest in the city’s architecture and history.

4heads is non-profit organization run by artists for artists. It was launched in 2008, when artists Nicole Laemmle, Jack Robinson, and Antony Zito saw an opportunity to create a platform that would serve emerging artists and the local community through exhibitions, education programs, and artistic collaborations.
The organization’s DIY spirit inspires and excites its audiences, while catalyzing a dialogue between artists and people from all walks of life. Its diverse slate of initiatives includes Governors Island Art Fair, Portal, arts-education initiatives for underserved communities, and an Artists in Residence program.
4heads is committed to shedding new light on hidden culture and bringing new life to unexpected and unique spaces across the city.
