SUPERFINE! MIAMI 2017
The art fair designed to shake up the art market came back for a third Basel week to continue breaking down barriers and promoting a fun, dynamic, and accessible collectors' market in the heart of Midtown Miami.
46 international exhibitors ranging from top global galleries to Miami-bred independent artists showcased over 1,200 new works (70% priced accessibly between $200 and $4,000) as part of the only fair curated to provide both value and cutting-edge artwork under the same roof. A musical calendar of Miami's top acts combined with educational yet fun panel discussions that made you feel like an art world insider rounded out the offering.
DOLPHIN ARTISTS AT SUPERFINE!
At Superfine! - The Fair, when we say "art for all", we really mean it! Accompanying our talented array of global artists this December will be a team of artists who paint not with their hands but their rostrums (read: mouths), and it's all for a good cause.
SUPERFINE! NYC 2017
From May 4-7, 2017, Superfine! presented its inaugural New York edition of the art fair that has taken Miami by storm the past two years. Superfine! has been spreading the message that everyone should collect artwork at all price ranges--without sacrificing quality. This third overall rendition of the fair brought this message to life, with collectors ranging from Frieze Art Fair VIP members to the guy running the bar.
SUPERFINE! MIAMI 2016
The second edition of Superfine! The Fairest Fair hit Miami Art Week with a bang. With over 40 international exhibitors (more than half of them from Miami) the 2016 Midtown Miami edition combined a curated survey of well-priced visual art with a strong performance and education backbone to create a fair that serves the needs of its exhibitors while providing a refreshing and dynamic space for attendees. Superfine! exists to humanize the art world by building and sustaining an innovative platform for the passionate people who create and showcase art. By removing the many layers of cost typically absorbed by the collector, we are thus able to deliver high-quality, accessibly-priced artwork directly to both new and established collectors, providing a breath of fresh air into the stolid and opaque art world of yore.

LITTLE RIVER'S NIGHT OF LIGHT - A ONE NIGHT MIAMI CULTURE CRAWL
On June 25th, 2016, the team behind the Superfine! art fair and creative art consultancy The JAMM Project, along with 25 independent spaces, lit up the Little River and Little Haiti neighborhoods in the very first Little River's Night of Light. Designed as an exercise in community arts programming, the inaugural Night of Light garnered attention from the Miami Herald and local bloggers as well as over 5000 attendees who traversed the galleries, creative hubs, and artists' studios throughout the Little River Art District and other reaches of Miami's Little Haiti neighborhood. Nearby nabes got involved too, as a co-sponsored installation by collective Nice'N Easy floated gracefully in the pool at the restored Vagabond Hotel in the MiMo District, and cocktails flowed to retro tunes at The Anderson. All told, Night of Light transcended the boundaries of a single neighborhood and illuminated a path less traveled in order to expose expose adventurous Miamians to the amazing efforts of the myriad artists and artrepreneurs who call these creative enclaves home.
