VOLTA debuted in Basel in 2005 as an art fair collaboration between dealers and friends.

The aim was to secure a platform for international galleries beyond young art fair Liste and market heavyweight Art Basel.

VOLTA’s New York fair followed in 2008, offering a solo and boutique alternative to the crowded trade show tradition of Armory Week in March.

Concerns and aspirations of the exhibiting galleries have been of the utmost importance since VOLTA’s inception, resulting in eclectic and dynamic solo presentations and multiple artists in curated conversations.

In autumn 2019, Ramsay Fairs acquired VOLTA, sparking fresh ideas toward future editions.

Under the new leadership of Kamiar Maleki and with editions in New York and Basel, VOLTA builds the foundation and platform for younger galleries to participate in the art markets’ major cities.

In 2022, VOLTA Art Fairs returns to New York during Frieze Week from May 18 to 22 at 548 West 22nd Street, the former Dia Building and Hauser & Wirth gallery space.

Followed by the fair’s 17th Basel edition, returning to ELYS at Elsässerstrasse 215a in Basel, June 13 to 19.
