07 Mar 201811 Mar 2018

The eleventh edition of VOLTA in New York City runs from March 7 to 11, 2018. The fair is welcoming 85 international galleries across four continents and 48 cities, presenting a dynamic and timely survey of innovative contemporary positions by artists from 32 nations.
The array of solo artist projects at VOLTA NY 2018 features an eclectic mix of new and recent bodies of work by emerging and mid-career talent, punctuated by mini-retrospectives by key artists of notable repute, reflecting VOLTA’s mission of identifying and showcasing essential artistic voices throughout the world, regardless of age or discipline.

“We’re thrilled to be working with such a broad range of artists and galleries that embrace art practices from emerging to mature and from all corners of the globe,” comments Amanda Coulson, VOLTA Artistic Director. “As we see many of our former exhibitors graduating to our sister fair, The Armory Show, next door, we may then showcase other strong and timely voices and position VOLTA always close to our original mandate: to be a place for artistic discovery.”

Mickalene Thomas and Racquel Chevremont are the curators of  The Aesthetics of Matter across a 2,600-square-foot space in the heart of PIER 90, an array of freestanding museum-style walls that afford and en- courage dialogue between artists, as well as a specifc focus in contrast to the traditional booth architecture and solo projects surrounding it. “This exhibition will include paintings, sculpture, photography, video, text, and printed matter,” notes the co-curators. “The artists’ works are social and political through the form of collage, which has always been thought of as ‘a moment of crisis in consciousness’.”
