SuperFine! Art Fair for Artists

Note: Superfine! takes no commission on any artwork sold either in person at the fair or via our online E-Fair.

Get to Know Us

Superfine! was founded by art collectors Alex Mitow and James Miille. Superfine! began in 2015 as an alternative to stuffy boring art shows and complicated art world politics. From the beginning, we received flack from the art establishment when we broke down barriers and opened the gates for everyone from serious long-time art collectors to people who just love art and never thought they’d collect.

As it turns out, nobody cares about the art world and their politics. Our approach which is open and transparent worked: imaginations have been sparked and countless new collections have been jump-started at Superfine! fairs. 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.

A whole year of exhibitions in one weekend.

  • 6-10,000 motivated, art-hungry visitors during the four days of the fair.

  • 25% of our visitors make a significant ($100-$2,500+) art purchase.

FAQ:

1) Can I share a booth with a friend?

The 8' and 12' booths are intended only for solo artists, but our 16' and 20' booths can be shared by up to three artists. One person, however, must be appointed as the booth representative for communication and payment purposes.

 

2) I'm a gallery, can I apply?

Superfine! is an artist-driven fair, but we do welcome applications from progressive, forward-thinking galleries, collectives, and artist-run programs. Each Superfine! fair has a dedicated number (between 5 and 20) of larger booths ideal for galleries. You can contact our sales team at exhibit@superfine.world for more information about coming on board as a gallery.

 

3) Can I get a discount?

We offer a 5% per-fair discount for booths paid upfront in full, within three business days of a signed application. If it's immediate cash flow that's a concern, we offer options to spread booth costs over as much as a year - just ask us!

 

4) Why did you choose DTLA?

Our beautiful, plug-and-play DTLA venue at The Reef is not only a three-minute sprinter shuttle away from the LA Art Show, but is surprisingly affordable. Founded by art fair veterans, The Reef cuts our production cost which allows us to dedicate considerably more resources (more than double the budget of other fairs) to marketing the fair and our artists. Our core demographic (affluent, 26-45, creative early adopters) is also very prevalent in the DTLA and adjacent neighborhoods (Echo Park, Silver Lake, Highland Park) and our targeted marketing bring them to the fair.

 

Location: The Reef, 1933 S. Broadway, Los Angeles, CA 90007

Fair dates: February 6 - 9, 2020

Application Deadline: January 6, 2020. Booths are selling quickly, so we recommend applying early!
