Festivals Superfine Art Fair | NYCx3 2020

SuperfineNew York, New York, United States

Superfine! Art Fair

Opportunity Description

International Deadline: March 4, 2020 – Superfine! NYCx3 is a revolutionary new art fair concept built in harmony with lower Manhattan’s high-roller real estate market. Instead of one five-day fair, we’re programming three consecutive fairs in a strategic lower Manhattan locale next spring.

The triple focus on women artists, contemporary surrealists, and LGBTQI+ artists plays out in the overarching themes: (wo)man, myth, and Magick. In keeping with the themed program, each fair will be limited to no more than 60 exhibitors for a highly curated experience.

Lower Manhattan Fairs and Dates:

NYCx1: (wo)man | April 22 – 26, 2020
The female perspective arrives at the forefront in the fair that launches NYCx3, with a focus on women artists taking their art to the next level.

NYCx2: myth | April 29 – May 2, 2020
Surrealist ideas and modern mythology provide the backdrop for a diverse fair comprised of artists at the cutting edge of emerging contemporary art.

NYCx3: Magick | May 5 – 9, 2020
A celebration of all things queer: Magick highlights LGBTQI+ and ally artists representing the queer global experience across a broad range of styles and media.

A whole year of exhibitions in a weekend:

  • Connect with 5-7,000 motivated, art-hungry New Yorkers during each five day fair.
  • ~25% of our visitors make a significant ($100-$2,500+) art purchase.
  • More than 50% of our exhibiting artists receive major media coverage.

Make art. Sell art. We do the rest:

  • Meet your next collectors in a friendly, welcoming space: the ideal environment to discover, collect, and sell art.
  • Innovative cost-saving and cost-spreading financing options that work with every artist’s budget to make exhibiting and selling a reality.
  • Serious opportunities for features in Superfine!’s earned (press + PR), owned (website, blog, and social), and paid (advertising) media.

You’re the art-making expert. We’re the art-marketing experts:

  • The smartest and most sophisticated marketing engine in the industry: we get the eyes you want in front of your work. Our audience is 26-45, affluent ($120k+/year), and buying art now.
  • We’re top drawer: a professional, courteous, and knowledgeable team of experts guiding you every step of the way. Exhibit and sell your work, and gain champions of your career.
  • Lead-up webinars and curatorial guidelines geared towards success. Take what you learn with you and make it work for you year-round.

About:
Founded by art collectors Alex Mitow and James Miille, Superfine! started out in 2015 as an alternative to boring, stuffy art shows and complicated art world politics. From the start, we caught flack from the art establishment when we broke down barriers and opened the gates to everyone from serious long-time art collectors to people who just love art and never thought they’d collect.

As it turned out, nobody cared about the art world and their politics. Our open and transparent approach worked: imaginations have been sparked and countless new collections have been jump-started at Superfine! fairs as we continue to spread our message of a more inclusive art market across the country. Since 2015, we’ve had one goal: produce badass, expertly curated art shows where über-talented, diverse global artists meet their new fans in iconic locations across the US and beyond.
