VOLTA BASEL
SEPTEMBER 14–20, 2020
LOCATION: ELSÄSSERSTRASSE 215

 

VOLTA showcases contemporary positions by up-and-coming and mid-career artists with an emphasis on discovery, both for the curious newcomer and for the seasoned collector alike. By spotlighting artists through solo projects and tightly-curated presentations, VOLTA encourages exhibitors to present serious gallery shows, while refocusing the fair-going experience back on its most fundamental point: the artists and their works.

VOLTA Basel debuted 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. Concerns and aspirations of the exhibiting gallerists have been first and foremost since VOLTA‘s inception, resulting in eclectic and dynamic presentations with a strong focus on solo presentations and several artists in curated conversation.

Embarking on its 16th year in Basel, with the new leadership Director Kamiar Maleki, VOLTA returns to the former COOP distribution center at Elsässerstrasse 215, sited near the Novartis Campus and the fair’s inaugural venue of Voltahalle.
