Superfine! NYC Art Fair May 2- 9 , 2018 @superfine_fair #superfinenyc

A sleeker, sexier, smarter art fair that still manages to stay friendly and approachable, the second edition of Superfine! NYC touches down in the ever-bustling Meatpacking District this May. 78 international art galleries, solo projects, and collectives bring their unique perspectives to New York’s top emerging art fair. 2018’s 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.
