The American incarnation of the original Basel VOLTA show, VOLTA New York is back. Operating as a beacon for creative discovery and social engagement during Armory Arts Week, it returns to its original intention as a boutique event at the intimate venue of Metropolitan West for a more immersive fair experience.
VOLTA New York 2020 will showcase contemporary positions by up-and-coming and mid-career artists with an emphasis on discovery while spotlighting artists through solo projects and tightly-curated presentations. This year, the international event will bring together 54 galleries, alongside a diverse array of solo projects and curated presentations.
The new Director Kamiar Maleki explains that the exhibitor list has been focused on “strong and diverse 50-plus galleries and have loosened up the solo-project mandate to offer participants greater liberty to stage their presentations as they would do so at their home galleries.”

Reitzel Gallery from Santo Domingo, presenting breakout Spanish duo Los Bravú; and Léna & Roselli Gallery from Budapest, presenting a study in figurative and metaphysical contrast between Hungarian painter Mózes Incze and Carrara marble sculptor Boldi, among others.
