VOLTA New York 2020
VOLTA New York’s 2020 edition will take place from March 4-8, 2020, concurrent with Armory Arts Week.
VOLTA New York returns to the city this year in a new location, under the ownership of Ramsay Fairs and what’s more VOLTA welcomes its new fair director, Kamiar Maleki, with 15 years of experience in collecting, curating and managing art projects and fairs under her belt.
VOLTA’s 2020 edition will take place at Metropolitan West. Fifty-four galleries from 35 cities and five continents come together for VOLTA New York, with a diverse array of solo projects and curated presentations by artists from 22 nations.
In the word of new Fair Director Kamiar Maleki: “VOLTA’s new ownership by Ramsay Fairs and moving to Metropolitan West as the fair’s return to the city positions us with the wind at our backs. We have focused the exhibitor list to a strong and diverse 50-plus galleries and have loosened up the solo-project mandate to offer participants greater liberty to stage their presentations as they would do so at their home galleries. This all results in a balanced and curated VOLTA New York fair, one built on artistic discovery, as our founders understood and as our 2020 edition attests. I look forward to sharing it with you all.”
VOLTA 2020 will host both longtime and loyal VOLTA galleries as well as first-time exhibitors. Notably for 2020, several galleries from VOLTA’s “extended family” return to the fair after several years’ absence from participating, including Jonathan Ferrara Gallery (New Orleans), Lyle O. Reitzel Gallery (Santo Domingo), Léna & Roselli Gallery (Budapest), The Cynthia Corbett Gallery (London) and The Flat – Massimo Carasi (Milan). Other returning galleries include Cohju Contemporary Art (Kyoto), Mark Hachem (Paris/Beirut), Galerie Wenger (Zürich) and Charlie Smith London (London).
Those new this year to VOLTA include Gallery 1957 (Accra), Marquee Projects (Bellport, NY), x-ist (Istanbul) and Roya Khadjavi Projects (New York).
