Noted for being a “space for discovery”, VOLTA Basel 2019 returns to the former COOP distribution center as the newest cultural hub in Basel, taking place from June 10th – 15th, 2019. Celebrating its 15th year at the city on the Rhine, VOLTA is concurrent with Art Basel Week, and assembles 79 galleries across four continents and 25 nations to showcase compelling artist projects. Located across from the Novartis Campus at Elsässerstrasse 215, just 9 minutes away from the main fair and within the neighborhood of the very first venue at Voltaplatz, VOLTA sets the tone and plants its (artistic) flag as the first major event within the space.

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. Concerns and aspirations of the exhibiting gallerists have been first and foremost since VOLTA’s inception; in combination 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.

“It feels slightly surreal, and yet undeniably exciting, to light a candle on our 15th year in Basel,” notes Amanda Coulson, VOLTA Artistic Director. “The art world landscape, and indeed the broader political and cultural landscapes, have shifted so much since our founding in 2005. And yet, our core foundation of advocating for ‘mother galleries’ — for the emerging and the ambitious who may break into the blue-chip fairs one day or who are being overlooked despite their progress ‘at home’ — remains as true and as serious as ever. The quality and consistency of our exhibitors and their compelling projects reflect this mandate. VOLTA visitors are in for a real treat this year.”
