The roaring ’20s are upon us, and there are enough art fairs on the calendar to keep everyone prosperous.

Kicking off the year is the sophomore edition of Frieze Los Angeles, followed closely by the 1-54 Contemporary African Art Fair in Cape Town and ARCO in Madrid. Then, April showers bring… a lot more fairs, from São Paulo to Switzerland.

To help you keep track, we’ve compiled a running list of everything that’s going on in the first half of the year. Check back for part two as more fairs release dates for the second half of the year.
