A must-see is David Zwirner's booth (Booth #A44), which features a battery of important artists, some of them historical such as Josef Albers, Noah Davis, Alice Neel, Ad Reinhardt and Robert Ryman, along with Marlene Dumas, the nonagenarian Yayoi Kusama and recent works by artists from the gallery such as Tomma Abts, Marcel Dzama, Katherine Bernhardt, Barbara Kruger, Nate Lowman, Oscar Murillo, Chris Ofili, the wonderful Dana Schutz and Elizabeth Peyton, Wolfgang Tillmans, Jordan Wolfson and Lisa Yuskavage.

When it comes to spectacular works, the compass of common sense guides us to the Meridians sector, not only because of the size of its proposals, but also because of its selection criteria. Among the recommendations that its curator Magalí Arriola made exclusively to El País, are the single-channel video installation "Quiet as It's Kept" (2023) by Ja'Tovia Gary, represented by the Paula Cooper gallery (#M2) that explores some of the keys of "The Bluest Eye" (1970), the first novel by Toni Morrison, winner of the 1993 Nobel Prize in Literature.
