The 4 Heads Art Fair returns for the fourth year in a row to Building 12.
The 4heads jury has chosen 120 independent artists of merit and a select number of innovative galleries to participate in the fair, which runs every weekend in September. Each participant is granted space in Building 12, a former military barracks on the Island’s eastern shore, and is given free reign to design his or her own exhibition.
The epic scope of the 2011 fair includes 116 rooms of sculpture, photography, painting, video, sound, and object installations. While featuring artists from as far away as Switzerland and Morocco, the fair will also provide a unique venue for a large number of New York talents. Highlights this year will range from Jonathan Smith’s photographs of eerily quiet nighttime cityscapes, to Susan Camp’s sculptures made from gourds grown in moulds, to a group exhibition by NYFA’s Artist as Entrepreneur Boot Camp, to Naomi Campbell’s work, made from x rays and light.
Each weekend there will be different events and programs in and around Building 12 as a part of the Fair. Be sure to stop by when you come out this weekend and throughout September!
