Announcing exhibitors and artists for the 2018 show
VOLTA NY returns to Pier 90 for its eleventh edition in New York City, from March 7 – 11, 2018, concurrent with Armory Arts Week. VOLTA underscores its mandate of “global vision – solo focus” by welcoming 85 international galleries across four continents and 48 cities, presenting a dynamic and timely survey of innovative contemporary positions by artists from 32 nations.
The array of solo artist projects at VOLTA NY 2018 features an eclectic mix of new and recent bodies of work by emerging and mid-career talent, punctuated by mini-retrospectives by key artists of notable repute, refecting VOLTA’s mission of identifying and showcasing essential artistic voices throughout the world, regardless of age or discipline. The 85 projects within VOLTA NY’s main section occur alongside the third iteration of the fair’s critically received Curated Section, The Aesthetics of Matter, co-curated by Mickalene Thomas and Racquel Chevremont.
“We’re thrilled to be working with such a broad range of artists and galleries that embrace art practices from emerging to mature and from all corners of the globe,” comments Amanda Coulson, VOLTA Artistic Director. “As we see many of our former exhibitors graduating to our sister fair, The Armory Show, next door, we may then showcase other strong and timely voices and position VOLTA always close to our original mandate: to be a place for artistic discovery.”
