Basel - Switzerland
From June, 16 to June, 21 2014
VOLTA is Basel's renowned platform for presenting the vision of contemporary art galleries of global prestige 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 to work with the most exciting emerging artists. These galleries must keep deeply meaningful connections with their artists and follow them throughout their careers. In turn, select galleries exhibit in the airy rotunda surroundings of Basel's Markthalle, elevating their own platforms for an experience mutually beneficial to fair visitors and the galleries alike.
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.
VOLTA was co-founded by three dealers, Kavi Gupta, Friedrich Loock and Uli Voges, and art critic Amanda Coulson in 2005.
