James Miille and Alex Mitow create “full-scale, professional art fairs, without the BS.” They are co-directors of the Superfine! Art Fair phenomenon, and an LGBT power couple. Art collectors themselves, they saw traditional fairs as expensive and at times elitist. In response, they debuted the Superfine! Art Fair in December of 2015.
The Superfine! Art Fair seems to be making art more accessible. The duo strives to keep prices affordable, which allows more people to grow their own collections. The collectors then represent a variety of backgrounds and interests. At the fairs, Miille and Mitow are present and sharing narratives on the art being exhibited. Many local artists make the jump to a national market by partaking in the Superfine! Art Fair.
Mitow and Miille are excited to be presenting their fifth iteration in Miami this coming December. Mitow states they have “built amazing collector and cultural relationships within and outside of the LGBT community and are excited to grow [their] ties to South Florida as [they] continue to expand in New York, Washington D.C, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Seattle.”
