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.
Superfine! NYC 2017 is the first rendition of the Superfine! art fair to hit New York, bringing nine gallery booths and 30 indie artist positions to the Meatpacking District. The event subverts the typical fair, opting for a hyper-curated environment over stuffy warehouses. Founders Alex Mitow and James Miille say they created Superfine! as a “reaction to the overall trend of the art market, which we felt was becoming a bit exclusive and stale and ultimately not serving the needs of the artists who depend on steady sales and a constant stream of new collectors to sustain themselves.”
