It’s May in New York, which means that Randalls Island is the center of the art world for the next four days. Every year since 2012, dealers and deep-pocketed collectors from all over the planet have descended on Frieze New York, the art fair housed under the massive tent on the bucolic isle between the Harlem and East Rivers. The 2015 edition, running today through Sunday, is no exception, with 190 galleries bringing bushels of artworks of every conceivable size and medium and then some. Some of the highlights include Jonathan Horowitz’s installation, in which fairgoers can paint dots as part of a series of 700 crows-sourced panels, and Korakrit Arunanondchai’s painted-splattered denim massage chairs. Also on view is another of Frank Benson’s hyperreal nudes, similar to one that was the hit of the New Museum Triennial. These works are but a tiny fraction of what’s in store for visitors wanting a one-stop-shopping look at what’s au courant in contemporary art. There’s also a program of talks on the big issues surrounding today’s art, as well as site-specific installations on the grounds. So whether you’re buying art or just browsing, there’s plenty to see and experience both indoors and out.

Frieze New York is at Randall’s Island Park through May 17.
