The day has finally arrived. Frieze New York opens this morning to VIPs, and to the general public tomorrow, on Randall’s Island, in what the fair’s organizers say is the largest tent ever erected in North America. Throughout the week, galleries and museums offer openings and special events. There are satellite fairs too. Below, a preview of what to expect. Before attending, brush up on your fair etiquette. We will be reporting from events throughout the week and into the weekend.
