Volta debuted in Basel in 2005 as an art fair collaboration between dealers and friends. The aim was to secure a platform for international galleries beyond young art fair Liste and market heavyweight Art Basel. Volta New York is a contemporary art fair comprised of solo projects by leading and emerging international artists. The American incarnation of the original Basel Volta show, Volta New York has since its 2008 debut operated as a beacon for creative discovery and social engagement during Armory Arts Week.
Led by Amanda Coulson, Volta's longtime Artistic Director, Volta showcases contemporary art positions in an approachable way accessible to younger art-lovers and seasoned collectors alike.
By spotlighting artists through solo projects, Volta promotes their galleries’ exhibition styles “at home” while refocusing the fair-going experience back to its most fundamental point: the artists and their works.
