Pulse returns tomorrow to its usual spot at the Metropolitan Pavilion in Chelsea. While it’s pegged its dates in past years to Armory Week, it’s moved to coincide with Frieze this weekend. The event runs May 3–6 (no Monday, as with Frieze), and features 45 galleries and 13 solo projects.

This year’s projects make it sound like something of a giant collector daycare. Special projects include a sonic tone by Jennie C. Jones, which is said to raise dopamine levels, a “psychic playroom,” in which collectors participate in live-action drawing and sculpting, by Inner Course, and a game room, which will include videogames by Bennett Foddy, curated by Babycastles.

Plus, the Pulse prize—$2,500 cash—will be awarded to an emerging artist in the IMPULSE section of the fair.
