Want to bring original art home? Feel like it’s out of your reach? Or that the system isn’t putting your dollars in the hands of artists, where it belongs? Superfine is your answer. 130+ outstanding artists from around the world convene in NYC for one weekend only to share exceptional new work with you in an elevated, comfortable, 30,000 square foot space looking out over Midtown Manhattan.

We’ve got 7 years of experience bringing the best curated in-person artist experience to New York City and we aren’t stopping. Expect hands-on live art demos, cutting-edge performances, and local food + beverage courtesy of Americano Cafe — all set to a hand-selected soundtrack of tunes from Byrne to Bossa to Bowie (and everything in between.)

Due to the key location and space limitations, TICKETS WILL SELL OUT. Buy now and secure your spot in your preferred time slot.

“We loved meeting and talking with the artists to hear more about their work. We also loved the diversity of art presented from local favorites to new discoveries.”

An Art Fair That Defies Expectations

We were tired of big, formal art fairs and exclusive galleries, where bored staffers didn’t bother to look at you if you weren’t a boldface name, and the artists’ real stories were obscured by large-scale commodofication and prioritizing profits over people.

As art lovers and collectors ourselves, we wanted to see a space where it didn’t matter who you are, what you looked like, or the size of your bank account. A place where people who love art can connect directly with artists, and support them directly too.

For 10 years we’ve lived up to our promise and put the best new art in the world in the hands of those who love it, redefined what it means to be a thriving artist, an art supporter, or even a fan who wants a little something made by an artist to remember their experience.

We can’t wait for you to meet our Class of 2024 NYC artists. See you at the fair.

-Alex Mitow & James Miille, Superfine Art Fair Co-Founders
