The Frieze Art Fair made quite the first impression last spring when it hopped the pond for its inaugural New York exhibition. Ever since, we’ve been jonesin’ to get back in the massive snaking tent by architecture firm SO-IL to check out contemporary art from around the globe. Over 180 galleries will be taking part in the four-day fair, making the journey to Randall’s Island well worth its while. With so much to see, picking a route through the grounds might be daunting, so to help you get a leg up on it, we’ve put together a list of seven things not to be missed.

Frieze New York takes place May 10 – 13, 2013, on Randall’s Island. For more information, click here.
