  • Governors Island Art Fair (GIAF) is an annual event on Governors Island in New York Harbor presented by .It is an exhibition created entirely by artists and volunteers working together to share in the public space generously provided by the Governors Island Preservation and Education Corporation. Housed in a deserted army barracks, the fair exhibits the work of over 100 artists from around the world, working in all disciplines. The founders and organizers have established a hands-off curatorial environment, inviting the individual artists to create an experience of their own. This allows viewers an opportunity to see artwork – unrestrained by curatorial limitations – by some of the world's best independent artists in a beautiful, historic park setting. Until 2011, few outside of the military had ever visited Governors Island. Although this 172 acres (70 ha) island lies only 800 yards from the southern tip of Manhattan it had remained relatively unknown. For almost two centuries Governors Island was a military base, home to the U.S. Army and the Coast Guard. On Jan. 31, 2003, the island was transferred to the people of New York and its increasing popularity as a cultural destination has reinvented the abandoned installation. Historic and full of potential, it is perhaps the last great expanse of undeveloped space for public use in New York City. (en)
