Portal: Shifting Landscapes is an event created by organizers and artists working together to share art in a space donated by ChaShaMa. This collaboration brings artists and community members together in ways that build relationships and unlock creativity.

The exhibition will be on view from January 27 to February 10, 2024 at 340 East 64th Street, NYC. An Opening Reception will be held on January 27th from 6-9pm.

Portal’s pop-up exhibition Shifting Landscapes can be interpreted in a variety of ways: literal, ecological, personal, political, sociological. To this last category, as 4heads looks to new horizons after having headquartered on Governors Island as an exhibition home for 15 years, the idea of a pop-up itself signifies a state of transition and a shifting space.

Exhibitors were selected through an invitational call to alumni artists who have presented work across the many editions of Portal and GIAF. The request for proposals focused on exploring and engaging with shifting visions of place – both physically and metaphorically – and in relation to 4heads’ foundation as a space for nurturing and continued support for art practices.

Participating artists include Samuelle Green; Etsy Yaniv; Margot Spiindelman; Jonathan Ellis; Ed Grant; Eric Lawrence; and Megan Suttles

As 4heads navigates this nomadic and transitional time (shifting/changing/relocating) we invite you to join us for this immersive showcase featuring transportive art. Currently an at-large moveable feast of creativity that can popup anywhere, 4heads mission of “artists for artists” moves with us like a caravan. This first off-island pop-up highlights the symbiotic relationship between organizers and artists that we’ve nurtured for over a decade with a sampling of alumni work. The exhibition features artists who have shown and grown with us across the years (some who have been with us from the beginning, as well as more recent exhibitors).
