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 stalwart Liste and market heavyweight Art Basel. With the curatorial mind of Artistic Director Amanda Coulson, eclectic and dynamic presentations with a strong focus on solo presentations find a stage as refined as at the main fair.

VOLTA13 will take place at Markthalle in Basel, June 12 – 17, 2017, coinciding with Art Basel.

PREPARING YOUR APPLICATION

VOLTA’s mission is to be a place for discovery. As such, we encourage the presentation of emerging artists from your gallery program. While we recognize the value of the Basel platform for all artists in your roster, VOLTA is focused primarily on presenting solo projects and two or three artists in dialogue. Therefore, a carefully considered booth concept is required. Please be as specific as possible in describing your presentation through images and text. Your booth presentation must correspond with your accepted proposal and initial artists in your application.
