Be sure to catch the Just Above Midtown (JAM) section - gallery-led tributes to Linda Goode Bryant’s pioneering New York arts organization - just as MoMA announces that it will present an exhibition focused exclusively on JAM in 2020. At Frieze New York, Garth Greenan Gallery, New York (JAM2) presents Howardena Pindell, Hauser & Wirth, London (JAM4) present Lorna Simpson, featuring the artist’s new collages, and Jenkins Johnson Gallery (JAM6) - winner of this year's Stand Prize - presents Ming Smith, whose photography responds to the struggles of urban life.

Over at the Talks Lounge, writer Valeria Luiselli is in conversation with artist Terence Gower at 12:30pm. At the same time, in the Matchesfashion Lounge, artist William T. Williams is in conversation with Courtney Martin, Deputy Director and Chief Curator, Dia Art Foundation, talking about the place of abstraction and formalism in an age of social awareness.

Stop for lunch at Foul Witch in the Spotlight section of the fair, followed by a drink at the Bombay Sapphire lounge.

At 2pm, join Cameron Russell, model and co-founder of the Model Mafia, a collective of activist models, for a conversation about sustainability at the Matchesfashion lounge. A little later at 3pm, artist, chef and designer Laila Gohar will be taking over the Matchesfashion lounge with one of her unique edible installations.

The fair’s Frame section celebrates emerging galleries aged 10 years or younger. BANK, Shanghai (F12) present Yanyan Huang, with the booth operating as ‘an immersive portal into an unknown universe’, its wallpaper frescoes drawing on botany, mythology and Chinese calligraphy. Marinaro, New York (F15) presents Anthony Iacono, whose collages riff on themes of queer culture and their relationship to the everyday. And Microscope Gallery, New York (F3) present Takahiko Iimura, known for his pioneering work with film projection and playback, turning them into absurdist videos, installations and performances.

Finally, don’t miss Frieze Sculpture, presented at the Rockefeller Center with participating artists including Sarah Sze, Hank Willis Thomas and Goshka Macuga. Nick Cave’s oversized bronze gramophone suggests the power to activiate change, while Rochelle Goldberg provides us with a glimpse into a post-ecological reality.
