VOLTA’s cornerstone is: Discover. Connect. Collect. The fair was founded with the intention of providing a basic platform for dynamic galleries of the young and middle market that want to stand out in the big cities of the art world. Within a stratified industry that often succeeds at new and blue chip levels but proves to be more challenging for mid-market players, VOLTA seeks to address this critical abyss by providing galleries in the sector to confirm their role within the existing fair. Nexus.
With new exhibitors and returning exhibitors, this year’s fair once again presents VOLTU in the New York market as a discovery platform for both aspiring and experienced collectors. Convinced that, to ensure their continued success, galleries must give priority to connecting one-on-one with visitors and exhibitors, while fostering long-term relationships with collectors, VOLTA will provide established galleries with a platform to showcase their younger artists in a more experimental forum. These include galleries such as Leila Heller (New York / Dubai), Galerie Ernst Hilger (Vienna), Ethan Cohen (New York) and INDA Gallery (Budapest).
VOLTA New York will coincide with the Frieze Art Fair, located a few blocks north of VOLTA’s new location at 548 West, the former Dia building and the Hauser & Wirth gallery space at Chelsea. This transition opens a new chapter for VOLTA, which joined the Ramsay Fairs family in 2019 with a refreshed vision of reintroducing the fair as a global art destination for thoughtful curating and creative discovery.
For its 2022 New York edition, VOLTA will host solo and group presentations from galleries in Beirut, Budapest, Istanbul, London, Miami, New Orleans, New York, Santa Fe, Tokyo, Toronto, Washington DC and Vienna, among others.
