Waiting for the weekend to make the trek to Randall’s Island for the 2019 edition of Frieze New York? Here’s a peek of all that the art fair has to offer, from artwork by Nick Cave perched in the rafters and a painted floor by Sarah Cain to the show-stopping pairing of Yayoi Kusama and Chris Ofili that welcomes art lovers to Frieze’s big white tent.

With more than 190 galleries making the trip from cities around the world, there’s no shortage of art to see, including unmissable special sections on Latin American and outsider art—plus the fair’s brand new public art arm, Frieze Sculpture, down at Rockefeller Center.

Luckily, if navigating this veritable art wonderland is a daunting prospect, artnet News is here to help. We reported from the floor on the fair’s first day, which saw promising sales. We also got the scoop on the fair’s best buys (paintings for as little as $10 by Steve Keene at P.P.O.W.); the most Instagram-friendly photo op (a giant bus from Red Grooms at Marlborough Gallery); and the artists you probably don’t know, but should, in the 20th-century Spotlight section.

Happy Frieze Week!
