Volta 12 / Basel

VOLTA, the renowned art fair for new international positions, debuted in Basel in 2005 as a collaboration between dealers and friends. The aim was to secure a platform for international galleries beyond young art stalwart Liste and market heavyweight Art Basel. Concerns and aspirations of the exhibiting gallerists have been first and foremost since VOLTA’s inception; in combination with the curatorial mind of Artistic Director Amanda Coulson, eclectic and dynamic presentations with a strong focus on solo presentations find a stage as refined as at the main fair.

With the move back to the airy splendor of Basel’s landmark venue Markthalle, situated in a key central location in the city, VOLTA 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. Showcasing the highest calibre of new art bearing salient contemporary positions within an elegant environment: this is VOLTA’s mission.

For the 12th edition of the event, which takes place during Art Basel week from June 13—18, the fair returns with 68 galleries from 20 counties and 33 different cities. A total of eight new galleries will be making the trip to Basel to participate at the fair this year.
