Not Just Any Other Art Fair, Superfine! Moves to Soho for 2019

Punk rock spirit meets art market innovation at the third annual Superfine! Art Fair in NYC's always-hip Soho nabe. More than just any other art fair, Superfine! is a place of discovery. Hand-curated by LGBTQ art collector power couple James Miille and Alex Mitow, expect top emerging contemporary artist talent in a friendly, welcoming atmosphere. The founders' roots in hospitality show in a curated exhibition that's decidedly warmer and more inviting than your typical art fair. Everyone is welcome, everyone can - and often does - collect work. The pair believe not only in top-tier curation and challenging stuffy art world norms but also in transparency and accessibility. Works in the fair begin at $100, 90% of pieces are priced under $4,000, and with innovative financing options like Art Money available it's clear: this boutique art fair wants you to discover art that speaks to you, and take it home.

No back-door haggling, no inflated pricing, and certainly no snobbery, Superfine! is an art fair for all. Join us this May and discover art in a way you never imagined.

Be first - use the code FIRSTINART for half off tickets through April 1 (click here to apply code).

Projects + Interventions (Curated by directors unless otherwise noted)


Call Me By Your Preferred Pronoun | An accessible art intervention of paintings by Brooklyn artist Adam Chuck, reimagining and comtemporarizing the narrative of LGBTQ bildungsroman and Oscar-winning film Call Me By Your Name. Expect intimate paintings on mylar in Chuck's signature "Polaroid" style that project Elio and Oliver's post-final-page timeline and as couples reflecting a more diverse spectrum including queer and lesbian identities.



PANEL | "Why the F*^& Not: How Censorship is Hurting Art"

From controversies like Dana Schutz's Emmett Till painting in the Whitney Bienniale to the removal of John William Waterhouse's "Hylas and the Nymphs" from the Manchester Art Gallery, we'll talk about why and how art censorship harms artists' ability to express themselves, and how art establishments can solve this problem while keeping sensitive issues in mind.


PANEL | "Who's Footing the Bill? Moral Accountability in the Art Market
(and how a more accessible, transparent system solves the problem)”

From the assassination of Washington Post writer Jamal Khashoggi organized by a Saudi Royal who's also (likely) the mystery buyer behind the $450 million Da Vinci's Salvator Mundi to contemporary art-cum-money laundering operations, the art world is ripe with moral scandal. How can we find accountability in a world shrouded in secrecy, and how can a more transparent art market solve this moral dilemma?

"Mitow and Miille, whose vibrant, authentic, effortless relationship never overshadows the celebration of the art and artists present, certainly creates an inclusive, fun and open-minded tone for the overall proceedings. There’s also still something a little punk rock (with a wide, glistening smile) about Superfine! that shouldn’t be discounted."

- Kurt McVey, for WhiteHot Magazine of Contemporary Art
