Building a Better Art Market
Superfine! - The Fair was created by an artist and an arts entrepreneur in 2015 as a reaction to what we saw in the art market -- inflated prices, sluggish sales, and a widening valley between a constantly growing art-appreciating public and an insular art world positioned outside of their price range and comfort zone.
Through our mission to bring joy and excitement to the art of collecting art, we've achieved a balance that enables exhibitors to experience brisk sales (with fair exhibition fees) while affording collectors at all stages and levels the ability to take home work that they love, within their budget. Emerging contemporary art is our lifeblood, and we work constantly to create an atmosphere that links galleries and artists directly with the collectors whose patronage lifts them up and enables them to follow their passion. In the process, Superfine! has emerged as an alternative to typical art fairs - a transparent, approachable environment for buying and selling art that maintains the highest curatorial standards in the industry while simultaneously opening up the market to new collectors and emerging gallery programs and artists.
We don't just talk the talk: our core team have also become avid collectors of emerging contemporary art, living by the maxim of supporting both living, working artists, and those who represent and champion them. With the support of our devoted exhibitors, collectors, and media outlets, we've worked together to build not just another art fair, but a brand new art market whose success rests on the shoulders of not just a select few, but all who take pleasure in supporting talented, passionate emerging contemporary artists.
Born from Miami Art Week but constantly evolving, Superfine! now hosts annual editions of our namesake fair in New York, Miami, and Washington DC.
2019 will bring about a second New York fair in the fall as well as our very first LA fair in spring of 2019. Our fairs continue to surprise, educate, and entertain an exponentially growing contingent of both long-time and newly minted art collectors. With our second year in a row in Manhattan's bustling Meatpacking District, Superfine! NYC 2018 will bring forth 73 exhibitors showcasing over 1,800 works in one of the New York contemporary art world's favorite annual showings of emerging artists.
We look forward to meeting you at an upcoming Superfine! in New York, Washington, Miami, or LA in the coming months. Stay tuned for frequent updates as we enter new markets and continue to grow the fair beyond the walls of each edition.
