Not Just Any Other Art Fair

Punk rock spirit meets art innovation at the third annual Superfine! NYC. Explore three art-filled parlors more reminiscent of the Paris salons of yore or the famed Times Square Show than your typical art fair fare. Art to fall in love with pops out at you from the warm walls and halls of the historic Soho cast iron building, among hallowed cobblestoned streets once trod by Basquiat, Warhol, and art heroes of days past.

Hand-curated by art collector power couple James Miille and Alex Mitow, you'll discover next year's top artist talent in a friendly, warm atmosphere. Oh, and the best part? Not only do you get to meet top-tier artists (more than 80 of them), but works in the fair begin at $100, and 90% of the art is priced under $3,500 (read: fall in love, then take it home!) With each ticket, you'll also sip a complimentary craft beer, sparkling cocktail, or tumbler of wine in the lush, green mid-century accented lounge designed by fair director Alex Mitow.

No back-door haggling, no inflated pricing, and certainly no snobbery, Superfine! is an art fair for all.

Two Fairs...One Pass | Superfine! + Moniker Art Fair Downtown Double Dip

We're teaming up with Moniker Art Fair, just a few blocks north in Noho, to build a better downtown art fair schedule for you. Visit both fairs from Friday May 3 to Sunday May 5 on a single $25 dual day pass, which shakes out to about a 20% discount. Not a bad deal for two of the freshest art fairs in New York, and no boat trip or sketchy train schedule required. Experience two top new contemporary art fairs in the same day with just a short, sunny walk between them. Moniker, borne from London's Shoreditch urban art scene, exemplifies the best in emerging and established artists from the urban and street art genres.

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" | Friday 5.3 | 2pm-3pm in the Lounge

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 transparent system helps solve the problem!)" | Saturday 5.4 | 2pm-3pm in the Lounge

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?

Panelists: Alexandra Bregman, author of The Bouvier Affair; Alex Mitow, director of Superfine! Art Fair; and more TBA.


ARTIST TALK | "From Artist To Art Business with Hazy Mae" | Sunday 5.5 | 2pm-3pm in the Lounge

Artist and Superfine! NYC alum Hazy Mae chats with fair director Alex Mitow about the ins and outs of turning an artistic passion into a thriving business via her Hazy Mae Cookie Jar series of elevated, contemporary, functional objets d'art.

"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
