Basel's cutting-edge art fair for new and emerging art

10. – 15. Juni 2013

VOLTA is a platform for presenting the vision of contemporary art galleries of global repute whose artists represent new and relevant positions for curators and collectors alike. Conceived to bridge a gap between Basel’s pre-existing fairs, VOLTA showcases galleries – whether young or mature – that choose as their mandate to work with the most exciting emerging artists. These galleries must maintain deeply meaningful connections with their artists and follow them throughout their careers.

Encouraged by the response of collectors and curators during the last editions‘ solo presentations and carefully considered booths, a much stronger emphasis for VOLTA will be placed on single artist presentations or on booth concepts that bring the work of two artists into dialogue with one another, thus giving emphasis to artists by allowing for a greater understanding of different individual practices.

Select galleries exhibit in the airy loft surroundings of Basel’s Dreispitzhalle, elevating their respective platforms for an experience mutually beneficial to fair visitors and the galleries alike. Showcasing the highest calibre of art bearing salient contemporary positions within an elegant environment: this is VOLTA’s mission.
