VOLTA New York is the American incarnation of the original Basel VOLTA show and, since debuting in New York in 2008, it has operated as a beacon for creative discovery and social engagement during Armory Arts Week.
In 2020, under the collaborative leadership of outgoing Co-Founder, Amanda Coulson, and new Director, Kamiar Maleki, VOLTA returns both to New York and to its original intention as a boutique event at the intimate venue of Metropolitan West for a more immersive fair experience.
VOLTA showcases contemporary positions by emerging and mid-career artists with an emphasis on discovery, both for the curious newcomer and for the seasoned collector alike. By spotlighting artists through solo projects and tightly-curated presentations, VOLTA encourages exhibitors to present serious gallery shows, while refocusing the fair-going experience back on its most fundamental point: the artists and their works.
