As Frieze returns to Randall’s Island, Art New York brings a bevy of Cuban artworks to Manhattan. Here’s a quick guide on where to spot Cuban art at both fairs.

At Frieze New York

Galerie Peter Kilchmann. Los Carpinteros have long had a prominent spot in this Zurich-based gallery’s roster, and may be among the artists represented in its Frieze booth. B19.

Lehmann Maupin. You may not spot art by Teresita Fernández in the Lehmann Maupin booth. Instead, head to the gallery’s space in Chelsea, where American Landscape: Teresita Fernández, Catherine Opie, Tim Rollins and K.O.S., Nari Ward runs through this Saturday, May 5. E6.

Galerie Lelong. The gallery’s presentation addresses the theme of immigration, with a portion of the proceeds to benefit the International Rescue Committee. Among the artists represented, look for Ana Mendieta’s 1981 photograph Guanaroca (Esculturas Rupestres) (Estate print 1994), as well as work by Zilia Sánchez. B16.
