BASEL'S ART FAIR FOR NEW INTERNATIONAL POSITIONS
VOLTA, Basel’s art fair for new international positions, debuted in 2005 as a collaboration between dealers and friends. The aim was to secure a platform for international galleries beyond young art fair Liste and market heavyweight Art Basel. Concerns and aspirations of the exhibiting gallerists have been first and foremost since VOLTA‘s inception, resulting in eclectic and dynamic presentations with a strong focus on solo presentations.
Noted for being a “space for discovery”, VOLTA occurs at the former COOP distribution center within Basel’s emergent cultural center. Located across from the Novartis Campus at Elsässerstrasse 215, just 9 minutes away from the main fair and within the neighborhood of the very first venue at Voltaplatz. VOLTA has set the tone, planting its (artistic) flag as the first and recurring major event within the space.
