About NYCx3:

Superfine! NYCx3 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, we’re 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 60 exhibitors for a highly curated experience.

 

"Superfine! has been a life-changing experience that throttled my career and created so many new relationships with artists, collectors, curators, galleries and journalists that I still benefit from to this day."

-- Sean Christopher Ward, exhibiting artist

 

NYCx1: (wo)man | 4.22-4.26.2020

The female perspective arrives at the forefront in the fair that launches NYCx3, with a focus on women artists taking their art to the next level.

 

NYCx2: myth | 4.29-5.2.2020

Surrealist ideas and modern mythology provide the backdrop for a diverse fair comprised of artists at the cutting edge of emerging contemporary art.

 

NYCx3: Magick | 5.5-5.9.2020

A celebration of all things queer: Magick highlights LGBTQI+ and ally artists representing the queer global experience across a broad range of styles and media.

 

A whole year of exhibitions in a weekend.

  • Connect with 5-7,000 motivated, art-hungry New Yorkers during each five day fair.
  • ~25% of our visitors make a significant ($100-$2,500+) art purchase.
  • More than 50% of our exhibiting artists receive major media coverage.

 

Make art. Sell art. We do the rest.

  • Meet your next collectors in a friendly, welcoming space: the ideal environment to discover, collect, and sell art.
  • Innovative cost-saving and cost-spreading financing options that work with every artist's budget to make exhibiting and selling a reality.
  • Serious opportunities for features in Superfine!'s earned (press + PR), owned (website, blog, and social), and paid (advertising) media.

Note: Superfine! takes no commission on any artwork sold either in person at the fair or via our online E-Fair.

 

You’re the art-making expert. We’re the art-marketing experts.

  • The smartest and most sophisticated marketing engine in the industry: we get the eyes you want in front of your work. Our audience is 26-45, affluent ($120k+/year), and buying art now.

  • Lead-up webinars and curatorial guidelines geared towards success. Take what you learn with you and make it work for you year-round.

 

Get to Know Us

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

As it turned out, nobody cared about the art world and their politics. Our open and transparent approach worked: imaginations have been sparked and countless new collections have been jump-started at Superfine! fairs as we continue to spread our message of a more inclusive art market across the country. Since 2015, we’ve had one goal: produce badass, expertly curated art shows where über-talented, diverse global artists meet their new fans in iconic locations across the US and beyond.

FAQ:

1) Can I share a booth with a friend?

Our 8' and 12' artist booths are intended for solo artists only, but our 16' and 20' booths can be shared by up to 5 artists. However, one person must be appointed as the booth representative for communication and payment purposes.

 

2) I'm a gallery, can I apply?

Superfine! is an artist-driven fair but we welcome progressive, forward-thinking galleries, collectives, and artist-run programs to apply. Each fair has a dedicated number (between 5 and 20) of larger booths ideal for galleries. Contact our sales team at exhibit@superfine.world for more information about coming on board as a gallery.

 

3) Can I get a discount?

We do offer a 5% per-fair discount for booths paid in full upfront, within three business days of a signed application. If immediate cash flow is a concern, we offer options to spread booth costs over as much as a year - just ask us!

 

4) Why three fairs?

Our biggest infrastructure costs (venue + walls) are amortized over three weeks, allowing us to dedicate 2x more to marketing per fair. Hosting three more compact fairs lets us choose an ideal and strategic lower Manhattan venue, vs. seeking larger space in outer lying areas. With only 60 exhibitors, the fair is an intimate experience for artists and collectors alike, and our focused themes allow us to focus our audiences even better.
