Mad May: 7 Art Fairs in New York City
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.
That '70s Show at Eric Firestone Gallery | NoHo
In a project organized by the dealer Eric Firestone, 21 galleries will exhibit works by artists who were active in the 1970s. Calling itself an “alternative” to the fairs of Frieze, the show—on display in his walk-up NoHo loft—pays tribute to galleries invested in scholarship and the re-examination of artists from that decade. Entrance is free. May 18–21 at 4 Great Jones Street, Manhattan; 70sshownyc.com.
