New York's Favorite Art Fair Returns

A sleeker, sexier, smarter art fair that still manages to stay friendly and approachable, the second edition of Superfine! NYC touches down in the ever-bustling Meatpacking District this May. 78 international art galleries, solo projects, and collectives bring their unique perspectives to New York's top emerging art fair. 2018's fair continues to break down barriers between New Yorkers hungry to expand their own collections, and the artists and galleries at the forefront of new contemporary art.

The caliber of our exhibiting artists and galleries is outshone only by their passion for a friendly, transparent, and approachable new art market. You'll discover countless ways to appreciate and take home our cutting-edge artists and galleries' offerings. Whatever your taste, you'll fall in love with art at Superfine! NYC, and have a good time doing it.

BUILDING A BETTER ART MARKET

Superfine! 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 back to the art of collecting art, we've achieved a balance that enables exhibitors to see brisk sales while affording collectors at all stages and levels the ability to take home work that they love, within their budget. In the process, our core team have become avid art collectors - living by the maxim of supporting living, working artists along with 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 artists.


HEAR WHAT THEY'RE SAYING ABOUT SUPERFINE!:


"(Superfine! NYC) subverts the typical fair, opting for a hyper-curated environment over stuffy warehouses."

- Hi-Fructose Magazine


"Art for all is the buzz phrase of this boutique fair in which individual works are capped at $10,000 and about 70 percent are priced under $5,000."

- The Wall Street Journal


Their success is proof of their prowess and the validation that the stuffy rules of the artworld need to be reevaluated, mainly by listening to what people want.
