Volta Basel June 16th - 20th.

VOLTA6 will be held this year from Wednesday, June 16th through Sunday, June 20th.The fair is relocating to a NEW site at the Dreispitzhalle close to the Schaulager and will present 81 galleries presenting emerging and cutting-edge art.
Exclusively for VOLTA6, Galerie Ron Mandos will showcase new work from a selection of our artists. This will include a series of photographs from Anthony Goicolea, 3 hand-crafted, other-worldly sculptures from Silvia B, a series of new paintings from Esiri Erheriene-Essi & 2 new photographic works from Levi van Veluw.
VOLTA is a platform for presenting the vision of contemporary art galleries of global repute whose artists represent new and relevant positions for curators and collectors alike. Conceived to bridge a gap between Basel's pre-existing fairs, VOLTA showcases galleries - whether young or mature - that choose as their mandate to work with the most exciting emerging artists. The galleries are selected by an annually changing group of Curators to give each edition its own clear identity and to redirect focus back on the art producers as well as their representing galleries.
The 2010 Curatorial Board is composed of Adam Budak, Curator of Kunsthaus Graz and co-curator of Manifesta 7; Jacopo Crivelli Visconti, Critic & Curator, Sao Paulo, Christoph Doswald, Art Critic and Curator, Zurich; Jasper Sharp, Curator and Writer, Vienna; and Stephanie Smith, Curator at Smart Museum of Art, Chicago.
