Whether you’ve seen every fair already at the week’s various VIP previews or you’re saving it all for the weekend (best of luck to you!), if you’ve been paying attention, you know one thing to be true: there’s a lot of art to see in New York City right now. To help you sift through it all, we’ve amassed a few of our favorite artworks from six of the most prominent fairs of the week—The Armory Show, ADAA, The Independent, Spring/Break, VOLTA, and Pulse. From a couch at the Armory Show to an Emoji orgy (emorgy?) in the tradition of Hieronymus Bosch’s The Garden of Earthly Delights at Pulse, it’s all here.
