VOLTA’s cornerstones are: Discover. Connect. Collect. The fair was established with the intention of providing a foundational platform for dynamic younger and middle-market galleries seeking to stand out in the art world’s major cities. Within a stratified industry that often sees success at the emerging and blue-chip levels but proves more challenging for middle-market players, VOLTA seeks to address this critical chasm by yielding opportunities for galleries in this sector to assert their role within the existing trade show nexus.
With both new and returning exhibitors, this year’s fair stands to reintroduce VOLTA to the New York market as a platform for discovery for both aspiring and seasoned collectors alike. With the conviction that, to ensure their continued success, galleries must prioritize one-on-one connections with visitors and exhibitors while also fostering long-term relationships with collectors, VOLTA will provide a platform for established galleries to show 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, which is located a few blocks north of VOLTA’s new location at 548 West, the former Dia building and Hauser & Wirth gallery space in Chelsea. This transition ushers a new chapter for VOLTA, which joined the Ramsay Fairs family in 2019 with a refreshed vision to reintroduce the fair as a global art destination for considered curation 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.
