Portal: Shifting Landscapes
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.
