Here’s a sneak preview of the art fair that New Yorkers love to call their own, and some of the evening programs that you and your own crew of art warriors can enjoy. If you can’t squeeze in an evening of art, GA passes are also available for as little as $12. Click for tickets and scroll down for more info.
Dim Sum Collectors’ Dinner / Thursday, May 3rd 8pm
Join the Superfine! Collectors’ Society and Chinatown standard Nom Wah Tea Parlor for a night of inspired dim sum, sake, and art. You and 75 other guests will have the run of the show and will enjoy a nine course dim sum dinner followed by a private, personalized tour of the fair with director Alex Mitow and art advisor Sebastien Laboureau.
“Young Collectors” Ice Cream + Cocktail Social / Friday, May 4th 8pm
Ice cream and art? Yes, please. Sip sake cocktails and mingle with New York’s young collector community while cooling down with unlimited “snow cream” (because ice cream is so last year!) courtesy of experts on all things frozen Snowdays. The lovable creatures of the Dream Caverns performance art trio will enliven the halls of the fair with their quirky antics while you delight in Snowdays (without missing ACTUAL snow days…)
Girls’ Night Out (For Art!) w/ Lower Eastside Girls Club / Saturday, May 5th 8pm
A night of art and fun benefiting one of NYC’s most treasured neighborhood institutions. 20% of your ticket goes to support year-round after school arts programming at the Lower Eastside Girls Club, who will also set up shop with a booth throughout the duration of the fair, selling amazing works by their young artists for take-me-home prices. Expect live DJs from the Girls Club’s own roster, female artist-led performance art, and a good time supporting a great cause.
Always Want (no, NEED!) to be First?
We’ve got you. Those who can’t stomach the thought of missing out on *anything* are welcome to join the Superfine! team, our exhibitors, and all of our media friends at the Twilight Vernissage on Wednesday May 2nd. Tickets are $50 and include all-you-want cotton candy draped champagne, popcorn, and front row seats to the very first opening of this year’s Superfine! fair. The performers from Heidi Latsky Dance will give us a living sculpture court set to the ethereal rhythms of hangpan music while world-renowned body painter Trina Merry recreates the controversial Salvator Mundi and other $100 million+ artworks with live models for a one of a kind art spectacle.
