After its Big Apple debut in 2012, Frieze New York returns to Randall’s Island Park this weekend. Running May 10-13, the contemporary art fair will feature 180 galleries from 32 countries around the globe. Frieze New York, a stateside spinoff of the bigger Frieze Art Fair in London, is primarily split into two sections: “Focus,” which highlights galleries less than 10 years old and work that’s previously not been shown in an art-fair atmosphere, and “Frame,” which presents solo exhibitions that have been overseen by Frieze curators. This year’s fair also marks the introduction of an education initiative called “Frieze New York Education,” which allows public school students from 4th to 12th grades to learn about color theory and contemporary art through several workshops. Here, TIME looks at a few pieces visitors can expect to see this weekend.
