The fair features more than 90 galleries as it finally returns to New York from 6–10 May. Ocula asked Chantal Crousel, Beck & Eggeling, Galeria Mayoral, Gladstone Gallery, and Axel Vervoordt to share what they're showing and why.

Boris Vervoordt, Founder of Axel Vervoordt Gallery, Antwerp:

"A significant highlight of our booth this year is Kazuo Shiraga's Chiyusei Seibokukan (1961), part of the 'Shuihuzhuan warrior' series and a highly dynamic work of exceptional expressiveness.

Additionally, a large alabaster head of a woman from ancient South Arabia (3rd–1st century B.C.) possesses a striking contemporary aspect, with its monumental frontality, abstract features, asymmetric lines, and a powerful gaze.

We've always looked for works that give us a glimpse of the core of humanity. Works from the past that we can relate to today, works from faraway continents that we can learn from. Art offers lessons of truth and this understanding in our lives brings balance and harmony. We need this sense of interconnectedness more than ever.

As always, our stand is located in one of the historic rooms upstairs at Park Avenue Armory. The building has such a special energy, and we wanted to allow both the room and the artworks to express that unique relationship in a city with an uncommon passion for art."
