What do you want people to know most about you?
4heads is a New York-based arts group that specializes in commandeering and beautifying unused spaces - developing unique environments for the purpose of exhibition, installation and performance so that artists from all over the world can make good use of dismissed areas. Ernie Sandidge, Nicole Laemmle, Jack Robinson and Antony Zito make up the founding core of the group which was formed in early 2008 with a mission of forging new opportunities for the growing community of artists in New York and beyond.

4heads’ goal is to continually create diverse venues and forums to present, advocate and provide services for artists everywhere. The desire to structure valuable opportunities for creative individuals comes in part as an empathetic reflection of their own struggle as working artists surviving in NYC. 4heads are primarily focused on encouraging organically occurring culture by nurturing the evolving community of artists - who they see as the true voice of contemporary culture.

Every Friday, Saturday & Sunday in September, 4heads present
The Governors Island Art Fair 11 AM to 6 PM
Run by artists, for artists, The Governors Island Art Fair enters its 4th year this fall as 4heads rally an exciting and diverse selection of artists from around the world. Well over 100 independent artists are selected entirely on the merit of their work and, once chosen, each is given a room of their own in which to create an exhibition environment centered around their individual vision. A selection of galleries are exhibiting in the Fair as well and, this summer for the first time, 4heads are also offering art workshops and artists' studio residencies beginning in June.

Anatomical kaleidoscopy

Immagini tratte da uno studio di parti anatomiche, elaborate in maniera caleidoscopica. Risultato: non particolarmente esaltante...pur nella sua originalità.
