Ultra Brag, Südquaistrasse 55, CH-4019 Basel, Switzerland

With its third edition—the second in its new location at the Ultra Brag facility—VOLTAshow consolidated its reputation as the alternative scene for cutting-edge art during Basel’s art week.

Continuing the original concept of reaching beyond a marketplace atmosphere and creating an event that is even more exhibition than just an art fair, for the third edition of VOLTAshow -- this past June and positioned right between the openings of the Venice Biennale and Documenta 12 -- we instituted a Curatorial Board, which helped us securing the independence of the choices.

Executive Director Amanda Coulson, together with VOLTAshow Founders Kavi Gupta, Friedrich Loock and Ulrich Voges, were joined by the following international curators:

Christoph Doswald, Art Critic and Curator, Zurich

Mami Kataoka, Senior Curator, Mori Art Museum, Tokyo

Abaseh Mirvali, Executive Director, Colección/Fundación Jumex, Mexico City

Kitty Scott, Chief Curator, Serpentine Gallery, London

Jasper Sharp, Curator and Writer, Vienna
