A panel consisting of several contemporary artists from Latin America and a single critic moderator, this presentation will be structured along the lines of a newspaper Advice Column, with questions being asked anonymously by the audience members, several preselected “guests” and the artists themselves.
VOLTA NY is the American incarnation of the successful young fair founded in Basel in 2005. VOLTA NY was conceived to continue the original mandate to create a tightly-focused, boutique event that is a place for discovery and a showcase for current art production and relevant contemporary positions—regardless of the artist or gallery’s age.
VOLTA NY is an invitational show, organized by art critic and Fair Director Amanda Coulson, to complement the offerings across town at The Armory Show, with whom VOLTA NY shares the VIP and Talks Programs and shuttles to and from both fairs. By putting the focus back on artists through exclusively featuring solo projects, VOLTA NY promotes a deep exploration of the work of its selected projects, an opportunity for discoveries that move beyond those afforded by a traditional art fair.
