Highlighting up-and-coming as well as mid-career artists, VOLTA NY returns to Metropolitan West (639 west 46th St.) this March 4 to 8, 2020. Featuring 53 international galleries, this year’s installment is under new leadership from Director Kamiar Maleki, who has helped steered VOLTA towards becoming an intimate boutique event.
Focusing on a blend of longtime returning VOLTA galleries as well as first-time exhibitors, several galleries from VOLTA’s “extended family” return to the fair after several years’ absence from participating, each contributing a compelling voice to the boutique art fair. These “extended family” galleries include: Jonathan Ferrara Gallery (New Orleans), presenting a solo project by celebrated American sculptor Paul Villinski, renowned for his signature found-steel butterfly sculptures, his ambitious public works projects, and his Emergency Response Studio, created to house displaced artists post-Hurricane Katrina and first exhibited at Prospect.1, New Orleans.
First-time exhibitors to VOLTA span the globe and artistic discipline, including strong outings by: Gallery 1957 (Accra), showcasing Yaw Owusu in a solo project built around the young artist’s socioeconomic concerns in contemporary Ghana; Marquee Projects (Bellport, NY), unveiling an installation and re-imagined studio space of the late artist, critic, poet, and performance artist John Perreault x-ist (Istanbul)
