For the second consecutive year, the contemporary art fair will bring its “art to the masses” message to D.C., challenging the status quo of what an art fair can – and should – be.

Taking place October 30-November 3rd at the District’s Union Market, the event will showcase 85 galleries and independent artists, 60% of whom are based in the DMV, with others traveling from as far as Tokyo ( 山内康嗣), Milan (Denholm Berry), and Ukraine (Tsekh Gallery).

With more than 10,000 art enthusiasts expected to attend, this year’s fair, which also features Superfine! X, a large-scale experiential art installation, and DC’s artiest Halloween Art Party, will be twice the size of last year.

Superfine! founders Alex Mitow and James Miille set out to change people perception of the art world, ‘the only industry that’s historically tried to keep customers out,’ by making it more inclusive. In addition to cultivating a younger crowd, Mitow & Millie also work to highlight female, African American, and LGTBQ artists. According to Mitow, ”Our audience skews not only towards the tried and true collector, but anyone who really enjoys art. We love welcoming new collectors into the fold, and showing people how they can connect to artists and support their work.”

Superfine! has grown exponentially since it started as an annual Miami-based event during Art Basel, to full-scale fairs in NYC, LA, San Fran, Seattle and D.C.. Merging cutting edge visual art with performance art, gourmet food, music, and thought-provoking panels, Superfine! connects emerging artists with art lovers & collectors in a refreshingly welcoming environment.
