If you're the type of person whose calendar is filled to the brim with fairs, exclusive events, and gallery showings, you're probably really pumped for this coming week. New York City has art fair fever, with major fairs such as Volta New York and Frieze New York taking place, along with several smaller ones such as 1-54 Contemporary African Art Fair and the American Art Fair.

Volta New York

  • 548 W 22nd St, New York, NY
  • May 18 - May 22 2022

Beginning as an art fair collaboration between dealers and their friends in Basel, Volta has built up a reputation as a gallery favorite. It's easy to see why: the stacked contributors list grows every year. Purposefully planned during Frieze New York, it's really ideal to hit both.
