It’s Frieze Week in New York, which means big-name dealers with top-notch art — and hefty entrance fees. But there are alternative displays opening across the city this week, with modestly priced works by established and emerging artists. (These fairs are easier on the pocket and a little less overwhelming for casual browsers, too.) Here is a guide to some of them.
The Abstract Expressionist Ad Reinhardt once quipped that sculpture is what you bump into when you back up to see a painting. He hadn’t met tourists with cellphones in Rockefeller Center, though. The spring wave typically pauses for photos with Paul Manship’s gaudily golden “Prometheus” (1934). But this year the champion of humankind has plenty of competition: Frieze Sculpture at Rockefeller Center, an offshoot of the Frieze New York art fair on Randalls Island, in partnership with Tishman Speyer, is offering 16 sculptures by 14 contemporary artists placed around the complex, ready for enshrinement on your smartphone.
At the complex’s north end, Hank Willis Thomas’s two bright metal sculptures recreate talk bubbles in comic strips. (Visitors promptly adopted them as frames for photographing themselves.) Outside 30 Rockefeller Plaza, Paulo Nazareth’s tall cutout sculpture memorializes Tommie Smith raising his fist at the 1968 Mexico City Olympics. It’s moving to see visitors posing in a similar gesture of solidarity.
Jaume Plensa’s giant white head with truncated hands covering its eyes sits facing Fifth Avenue, transforming that artery into an eerie entryway, while Ibrahim Mahama’s jute sack flags around the upper perimeter of the skating rink suggest a ghostly summit. Sarah Sze’s contribution is a gray boulder cracked open with an iridescent sunset she captured on her cellphone and printed on the face of the stone. It is a smaller but effective disruption, as is Nick Cave’s sculpture of an old phonograph speaker with a human hand curling out of its base.
One of the most surprising works is a hulking 1974 bronze sculpture by Joan Miró that looks like something made much more recently. Two upright panels with a chain dangling between them, they suggest some kind of existential (or real) bondage. Other notable works by Walter De Maria, Goshka Macuga, Kiki Smith and Mr. Cave are in the lobbies or outside at Rockefeller Center, and an audio guide for viewing them can be found on the downloadable Frieze app. However, it won’t tell you how to craft the inevitable photograph that proves you were actually there. Despite the distractions, the sculptures do exactly what public art is supposed to do and activate the space. Through June 28; rockefellercenter.com. MARTHA SCHWENDENERObject & Thing
Object & Thing, which showcases art and design in a Bushwick industrial space, is the brainchild of Abby Bangser, a former artistic director of the Frieze art fairs. “I saw a need for a fair that blends both contemporary art and design yet without steep dealer costs,” Ms. Bangser said. The fair takes sales commissions so there are no dealer fees.
Ms. Bangser has roped in 32 top-notch dealers, among them Hauser & Wirth, Friedman Benda and Salon 94. Rafael de Cárdenas, who founded the firm Architecture at Large, has designed the fair. On view are 200 works priced from ,000 to ,000. Here you can find sculptural seating by the London designer Faye Toogood, vessels by Ettore Sottsass and sculpture by Matt Paweski.

The Other Art Fair, devoted to underrepresented artists, was jump-started by Ryan Stanier in London eight years ago. Clearly Mr. Stanier has come up with a winning formula as he now commands seven fairs globally; overall attendance is 200,000 with 20,000 sales, he said. “Not every one can plunk down ,000 for a painting, but we spotlight superb unrecognized talent at budget prices,” Mr. Stanier said. Fairgoers also get to meet the artists.
Of the 130 artists, 60 percent are women. Marianne Hendriks, whose work has been featured in Vogue Netherlands, is bringing her enticing botanical paintings while the photographer Xan Padron is showing color-saturated images of street scenes, and one shot in Beijing is 5.

The 1-54 Contemporary African Art Fair’s director, Touria El Glaoui, has moved her show from Brooklyn and taken over two entire floors of the event space Industria. On hand will be 24 galleries representing 70 artists.
“Museum curators and collectors urged me to stage the fair in the epicenter of the art world steps away from the Whitney and I listened,” Ms. El Glaoui said.
Expect artists like Rashaad Newsome, whose work is in Lacma and the Pompidou. The Chelsea De Buck Gallery will showcase his eerie collages for ,000 apiece. Some work is priced at ,000. May 3-5, Industria, 775 Washington Street, Manhattan; 1-54.com. BROOK S. MASONMoniker International Art Fair
The Moniker International Art Fair, dedicated to the growing field of urban art from graffiti, spray painting and sketches, was started by Tina Ziegler 10 years ago in London. While she staged her fair in Brooklyn last year, she has moved the event to NoHo. The new location has doubled in size with 32 participants, including galleries from Brussels and Moscow.
The artists here range from Swoon, who has created installations for MoMA, to Christian Boehmer, whose satirical drawings command ,250.
The New York investment adviser Scott Lawin, who owns 300 urban art examples, shopped at Moniker last year. “The appeal to me is that this art form is democratic,” Mr. Lawin said. “It’s affordable for many and some artists are achieving placement in museums.” May 1-5, 718 Broadway, Manhattan; monikerartfair.com.
