Enormous works—and in particular, sculptures and installations—tend to garner the biggest crowds at these fairs. But tucked away in several corners across Miami Art Week are gems worthy of recognition. Below, we’ve highlighted two more fairs that deserve a visit if you’re in Miami this week—both with an emphasis on curation.

Standing in direct contrast to Art Basel, Superfine! Miami transforms the space usually operated by CrossFit Wynwood and offers a focused, hypercurated vibe. It’s 11:30 p.m. opening on Wednesday night, titled “Midnight Vernissage,” underscored this notion. Veronika Rabinovich, who appears in the upcoming, 300-page book Hi-Fructose: New Contemporary Fashion, presented a new character at the event. And inside, visitors find just 46 exhibitors with accessibly priced work.

UNTITLED Miami Beach
UNTITLED was born in 2012, with the aim of “selecting a curatorial team to identify, and curate a selection of galleries, artist-run exhibition spaces, and non-profit institutions and organizations, in dialogue with an architecturally designed venue.” The international show features plenty of emerging talent. But luminaries like Amy Sherald, recently chosen to craft First Lady Michelle Obama’s portrait, also appear. Sherald is part of Monique Meloche Gallery’s booth.
