VOLTA NY brings the successful young fair stateside, continuing the original VOLTA mandate to create a tightly-focused, boutique affair that would be a place for discovery and concentrate on current and topical art production.
VOLTA NY introduces a new format with exclusively solo projects, conceived to complement the exciting program of art available during The Armory Week in March 2008.
The Armory Show Executive Director Katelijne de Backer states, "The VOLTA fair is one of these gems that has emerged on the art fair circuit in recent years and that no one can ignore. As we are part of the same family now, it was only obvious that we invite them to New York."
VOLTA NY will be organized as an invitational curated show under the title “The Eye of the Beholder” by the Directorial team of art critic/curators Amanda Coulson (Executive Director) and Christian Viveros-Fauné (Managing Director/Curatorial Advisor). By putting the focus back on artists through exclusively featuring solo projects, VOLTA NY promotes a deep exploration of the work of its selected artists and galleries, an opportunity for discoveries that move beyond those afforded by a traditional art fair.
VOLTA NY will be located at 7W 34th Street, directly across from Manhattan's classic icon, The Empire State Building. For more details of dates and times, please go to the Menu and click General Information.
