Hyperallergic Article about Governors Island Art Fair

The annual Governors Island Art Fair (GIAF), which features the work of emerging artists from around the region and across the globe, opens this Saturday, September 5, and continues every Saturday and Sunday in September.

For the first time, the fair will present artist installations in the Fort Jay magazine, a series of six cavernous brick chambers underneath Fort Jay that housed ammunition and explosives during the 19th and early 20th centuries. Varying in size, the magazine spaces will feature video and sound installations that take advantage of the raw environment and underground acoustics. Additionally, the 2015 edition of GIAF will feature more outdoor installations than previous years, creating a pathway of art between Fort Jay and the historic homes of military officers at Colonels’ Row— the fair’s primary location on the Island.
