This week in New York, the main attraction for many in the art world will be the Frieze art fair, which begins welcoming VIPs on Wednesday. As with last year, it will take place in the Shed, an arts venue in Hudson Yards, and it will include around 60 exhibitors. This all means that anyone who comes to Frieze will want to pay a visit to the nearby galleries in Chelsea that are about a 10-minute walk away.
Highlights on view there range from surveys of new work by today’s top artists to rare looks at under-recognized series by well-known giants of art history. At times, it can feel like there are too many exhibitions on view to know what to do with. To help you comb through them, ARTnews has selected five to see during Frieze New York.
