Portal 2017 in SOHO

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. 







Exhibiting Artists

Artists for Portal were selected through an invitational process. 4heads, Inc. leadership invited a selection of artists, many of whom have presented work across the nine editions of Governors Island Art Fair (GIAF).

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.
