A deluge of art arrives in Manhattan this week, with Frieze, NADA and satellite exhibitions spread around the city. If the last two years represented a slow return and then full-on bounce back to prepandemic arts programming, the array of art fairs this May embodies something of a spring frenzy. Here’s a guide to our favorites in Manhattan, by neighborhood.
This year, the Basel-born Volta Art Fair will present more than 50 national and international galleries, including exhibitors from South Korea, Dublin and Ivory Coast. Tickets are $12 for students and seniors, $38 for general admission and $48 for a private viewing with VIP access and re-entry. May 17-21 at the Metropolitan Pavilion, 125 West 18th Street, Manhattan; voltaartfairs.com.
