On the heels of successful shows in New York and Miami – where a life-sized NFT swimming pool displayed digital art – the contemporary art fair Superfine, which highlights the work of women artists, LGBTQ+ artists and artists of color, will take over the Magic Box downtown from Oct. 13-16. In addition to inclusivity, Superfine also prides itself on accessible pricing. With most of the art falling into the $75- $2,500 price range, and no commission taken from the artists, Superfine has generated over $10 million in sales on behalf of independent artists at annual fairs across the U.S. since launching at Art Basel in 2015.
Superfine founders Alex Mitow and James Miille set out to change people’s perception of the art world by forgoing the stuffiness found at most fairs.
“When we looked at the art world as gay men in our 20s and 30s, we felt excluded. We built Superfine to be a welcoming space where people who love art could collect it without the snobby vibes they encounter at a lot of fairs,” said Miille, who’s photography will be on display at the fair.
