Superfine! - The Fair Brings Fun, Approachable Take on Art Collecting to Meatpacking for Second Year 

A sleeker, sexier, smarter art fair that still manages to stay friendly and approachable, Superfine! NYC touches down in the ever-bustling Meatpacking District from May 2-6, 2018 for its second edition. Art fans can expect to find 78 international art galleries, solo projects and collectives bringing their unique perspectives to New York City's top emerging art fair. Superfine! NYC's 2018 art fair continues to break down barriers between New Yorkers hungry to expand their own collections and the artists and galleries at the forefront of new contemporary art.

The caliber of the fair's exhibiting artists and galleries is only surpassed by their passion for a friendly, transparent, and approachable new art market. Attendees will discover countless ways to appreciate the exhibited art and take home work from offered by our cutting-edge artists and galleries.

Whatever your taste, you'll fall in love with art at Superfine! NYC, and have a good time doing it.

Superfine! has editions in Miami, Washington DC, and Los Angeles but the NYC fair boasts some serious hometown credibility (50%+ of exhibitors hail from the NYC area) and progressive politics (70% of exhibiting artists are women with a base that also strongly reflects people of color and LGBT+ artists).

The fair will open on Wednesday May 2, 2018 to Superfine! Collectors' Society members and guests with a semi-private Twilight Vernissage. A promising talent and Superfine! exhibiting artist, body painter Trina Merry will perform a live recreation of two pieces from her “Lust of Currency” series which examines the role of art, commerce and society in a commoditized culture using a backdrop of famous paintings including the controversial Salvator Mundi.

Dancers from Heidi Latsky Dance's troupe, reflecting individuals of "diverse and extreme bodies" will act as a living sculpture court throughout the evening as guests enjoy cotton candy draped champagne, truffle popcorn, and an ethereal atmosphere.

The event will feature DJ-driven rhythms from the Girls Club's own DJ roster, female- focused performance art, and a celebration for all women in the arts in New York and around the world.

Other highlights from the fair's program include a seated Dim Sum Collectors' Dinner with Cantonese specialties from Chinatown mainstay Nom Wah Tea Parlor and a sake pairing curated by expert sommelier Zachary Gross, along with another food/art pairing in the fair's second annual Young Collectors' Ice Cream Social featuring "snow cream" by East Village phenom Snowdays.
