VOLTA is Basel’s renowned platform for presenting the vision of contemporary art galleries of global prestige whose artists represent new and relevant positions for curators and collectors alike.
Conceived to bridge a gap between Basel’s pre-existing fairs, VOLTA showcases galleries that choose to work with the most exciting emerging artists. These galleries must keep deeply meaningful connections with their artists and follow them throughout their careers. In turn, select galleries exhibit in the airy rotunda surroundings of Basel’s Markthalle, elevating their own platforms for an experience mutually beneficial to fair visitors and the galleries alike.
This year Volta is at its 10th editions, encouraged by the response of collectors and curators during the last editions solo presentations and carefully considered booths.
VOLTA was co-founded by three dealers, Kavi Gupta, Friedrich Loock and Uli Voges, and art critic Amanda Coulson in 2005.
