About Superfine! Art Fair

As both artists and collectors, Superfine! wanted to find a better way for regular people excited about art to connect directly with artists and support their work, and for artists to meet and retain their collectors, make more sales, and replace job income with art income. That’s how Superfine! was born: an art fair where artists can build a market for themselves, saving time, energy, and stress while allowing real people to discover, connect with, and support our artist community’s life work.

Superfine! has expanded to cities across the country: NYC, LA, Chicago, Seattle, Washington DC, and San Francisco. They have proven that the artist-to-buyer connection is at the center of a sustainable art market. In just 4 or 5 days, artists are meeting more collectors than they were in an entire year. 75% of surveyed visitors say meeting the artist is their favorite part of attending each Superfine! Art Fair.

Superfine! Art Fair NYCx3 2020 (New York City, NY) – Art Call

Superfine! NYCx3 2020 is a revolutionary new art fair concept built in harmony with lower Manhattan’s high-roller real estate market. Instead of one five-day fair, Superfine! is programming three consecutive fairs in a strategic lower Manhattan locale next spring. The triple focus on women artists, contemporary surrealists, and LGBTQI+ artists plays out in the overarching themes: (wo)man, myth, and Magick. In keeping with the themed program, each fair will be limited to no more than sixty exhibitors for a highly curated experience.

Superfine! Art Fair NYCx3 2020 Artist Benefits

In addition to lead-up webinars, curatorial and pricing guidance, an outstanding ground-level exhibition space in a high traffic neighborhood, and significant media exposure opportunities, Superfine! provides artists with access to top quality attendees primed to purchase.

Superfine! delivers these results by spending $50K+ per fair on hyper-targeted social media ads to help you connect with your next great collector sooner.

Social Equity

Founded by partners in work and life, James Miille and Alex Mitow, Superfine! emphasizes work by the LGBTQIA+ community and female artists. In 2020, Superfine! is launching a three-week themed art fair with a week devoted each to women artists and LGBTQIA+ artists.

About Superfine! Art Fair

Founded by art collectors Alex Mitow and James Miille, Superfine! started in 2015 as an alternative to boring, stuffy art shows and complicated art world politics. From the start, they caught flack from the art establishment. They broke down barriers and opened the gates to everyone from serious long-time art collectors to people who love art and never thought they would be collectors.

Their open and transparent approach worked. Imaginations have been sparked. Countless new collections have been jump-started at Superfine! art fairs as they continue to spread their message of a more inclusive art market across the country. Since 2015, they had one goal: produce bad-ass, expertly-curated art shows where über-talented, diverse global artists meet their new fans in iconic locations.
