Plan your route around the fair with a little help from international Time Out editors, who share their must-see gallery spaces at this year’s show

Time Out international picks

Taro Nasu  1C12

The list of artists represented by this gallery is impressive, including Tatsuo Majima and Futo Akiyoshi, as well as international artists like Anton Henning and Ryan Gander. Ihei Kimura Award-winning photographers Ryuji Miyamoto, Taiji Matsue, Cozue Takagi and young up-and-comer Akira Rachi are also involved. Time Out Tokyo

Pace Prints 1B32

Pace Prints is devoted to fine-art multiples and editions, notably by Pace's own artists. Time Out New York

Sadie Coles HQ 1B04

It’s little wonder that London dealer Sadie Coles continues to rise in ArtReview’s annual Power 100 chart. Having opened a 1,000sq m space just off Regent Street in 2013, she took the keys to another space in 2015, a two-storey gallery on Davies Street, opposite Phillips auction house and a stone’s throw from the latest London branch of the mighty Gagosian. Needless to say, the gallery has some big hitters on its books, including Sarah Lucas, John Currin, Ugo Rondinone and Richard Prince. But Coles remains an agile player, championing new names on the international scene including Helen Marten.  Time Out London

Greene Naftali 3C08

Greene Naftali has a reputation for hosting potent rock-’em-sock-’em conceptualist group shows. Time Out New York

Galerie Chantal Crousel 1C05

Chantal Crousel was the first in France to show work by Mona Hatoum and Tony Cragg. Hot younger talents include Rirkrit Tiravanija and Thomas Hirschhorn, as well as Anri Sala and Melik Ohanian, two of France’s most exciting video artists, and Cuban duo Jennifer Allora and Guillermo Calzadilla. Time Out Paris

Lisson Gallery 1C20

As it edges towards its 50th anniversary in 2017, Nicholas Logsdail’s Lisson Gallery continues to evolve and expand, with galleries in Milan and New York in addition to two spaces in London and a growing stable of artists including the massively respected filmmaker John Akomfrah. In fact, from hotshot Haroon Mirza to some of the biggest names on the planet right now including Marina Abramović and Ai Weiwei, the gallery stable is in its best shape for decades.
