Elsewhere, don’t miss Ed Clark's Untitled (1978-80) at Weiss Berlin in the Spotlight section, which the Brooklyn Museum acquired yesterday for their permanent collection. Other must-see highlights in Spotlight include the ‘fallen angels’ of L.A. occult icon Cameron, presented by Nicole Klagsbrun and Marc Selwyn Fine Art; Sicardi Ayers Bacino’s survey of radical Argentine artist León Ferrari; and  Jhaveri Contemporary, who were awarded the Stand Prize for their outstanding presentation of Indian pioneer Mohan Samant.

Other Stand Prizes awarded elsewhere across the fair include Portugal’s Nuno Centeno, exhibiting via the subsidised Focus platform for younger galleries, and Canada’s Cooper Cole, in Frame (a curated section for emerging talents) for their solo presentation of Tau Lewis - who, at 23, is perhaps the youngest artist exhibiting in the fair.

Outside the fair, enjoy the sunshine - or take respite from it - in the form of Shady (2018) an interactive outdoor sculpture featuring lengths of colorful ‘Shade’ cloth. The sculpture was commissioned from artist Kapwani Kiwanga who is recipient of the first Frieze Artist Award in New York, supported by Luma Foundation. Shady is located between the fair’s North Entrance and the ferry dock, and can be enjoyed by all visitors to Randall's Island Park.

For those taking the ferry returning from the fair - or those who are waiting to visit over the next few days - there surge of cultural activity can be enjoyed across the city tonight, with openings including Charles Ray at Matthew Marks, and both Urs Fischer and Jenny Saville at Gagosian.

Frieze New York 2018 runs May 3-6.
