Markthalle, Basel

VOLTA11 will return under the airy rotunda of Markthalle, the iconic domed building in Basel's city centre that hosted the fair's decade anniversary in 2014 to major acclaim, confirming its international regard as a dynamic hotbed for artistic discoveries.

comunicato stampa

Volta , the renowned art fair for new and emerging art, debuted in Basel in 2005 as a collaboration between dealers and friends. t he aim was to secure a platform for international galleries beyond young art stalwart l iste and market heavyweight a rt Basel. Concerns and aspirations of the exhibiting gallerists have been first and foremost since V olta ’s inception; in combination with the curatorial mind of a rtistic d irector a manda Coulson, eclectic and dynamic presentations with a strong focus on solo presentations find a stage as refined as at the main fair. o ver a decade on, V olta remains committed to the same values and spirit and now, in our ‘pre-teen years’, we are ready — in the immortal words of n igel t ufnel — to go to 11!

Volta has already created a brand known and respected for its strict selection of exhibiting galleries and artists, including a growing list of alumni who have graduated to the main fairs. f ormer exhibitors like a g entil Carioca ( r io de Janeiro), ste V enson (Cape t own/Johannesburg), o ne and J. g allery ( s eoul) and bitforms gallery ( n ew York) ascended to f rieze and a rt Basel after exhibiting at V olta . l ikewise, artists including t heaster g ates, Chris Johanson, z ilvinas k empinas, Cameron Platter, a raya r asdjarmrearnsook, and a drian w illiams have shown in prestigious events like the Venice Biennale, the o rangerie (Paris), d o CU menta , a rt Basel’s a rt Parcours and a rt Unlimited, following their featured showings at V olta

Encouraged by the response of collectors and institutional representatives to the fair’s solo presentations and curated booths, V olta will continue to highlight single-artist projects and dynamic configurations of two or three artists in dialogue as the backbone to its program. i n doing so, V olta returns the focus of the art fair atmosphere back to its most crucial component: the artists and their works

With the move back to the airy splendor of Basel’s landmark venue m arkthalle, situated in a key central location in the city, V olta confirmed its position as a mature player in Basel’s art week and elevates its exhibitors’ respective platforms for an experience mutually beneficial to fair visitors and the galleries alike. s howcasing the highest calibre of new art bearing salient contemporary positions within an elegant environment: this is V olta ’s mission.
