In New York, Frieze opens to the public this weekend at The Shed in Hudson Yards. It’s arguably the most significant art event in the capital’s calendar. But there’s more to art in New York than Frieze over the next few days. The city will be transformed by satellite events, alternative art fairs and exhibitions, all within walking distance of the Big Apple’s new art centre. Here, we take a look at the other exhibitions that opened this week which are also worth your attention, all along the famous High Line.
