VOLTA NY, taking place from Thursday, March 5, through Sunday, March 8, is thrilled to announce its new location for 2015: PIER 90 in Hell's Kitchen, New York.

"Having celebrated our tenth anniversary in Basel by moving to a more mature and central venue, we felt that in New York it was also time to take the platform up a notch," enthused VOLTA Artistic Director Amanda Coulson. "I'm more than excited to announce that VOLTA NY is settling in comfortably alongside its sister fair into the more accessible venue PIER 90, leveling the playing field and giving our galleries even better visibility and access to the crossover crowds already attending both fairs. As the scrappy baby in the family, however, we intend to maintain our different vision for presentations and layout and bring the inimitable VOLTA flair to the venue."


The landmark move positions VOLTA NY adjacent to The Armory Show, its sister fair and the focal point of Armory Arts Week. Moving to PIER 90 energizes a synergy between both fairs while retaining VOLTA NY's distinctive identity as New York's established boutique showcase for new and salient contemporary art positions within a curated, solo-project format the foundation of VOLTA's mission since its 2008 stateside debut.


The newly renovated PIER 90 offers 75,000 square feet of open exhibition space. Broad windows lining the pier provide ample daylight and scenic views of the Hudson River. As well, the sprawling interior space affords plenty of room for approximately 90 international exhibitors to showcase compelling solo projects that reaffirm VOLTA NY as a platform for discovery and refocus the art fair experience back to the art itself.


PIER 90 can be reached by public transportation via the Eighth Avenue line (E or C trains to 50th Street) or the Seventh Avenue line (1 train to Broadway/50th Street). Additionally, PIER 90 is located just four city blocks from Pier 94: The Armory Show Contemporary and is connected by an elevated covered passageway to Pier 92: The Armory Show Modern.
