This event has ended.

In 2009 VOLTA NY will be organized as an invitational curated show by the directorial team of art critic/curators Amanda Coulson (Executive Director) and Christian Viveros-Fauné (Curatorial Advisor). By putting the focus back on artists through exclusively featuring solo projects, VOLTA NY promotes a deep exploration of the work of its selected artists and galleries, an opportunity for discoveries that move beyond those afforded by a traditional art fair. This year's show, entitled Age of Anxiety, will focus on areas currently underexposed by the art world (Eastern Europe, the Middle East and Latin America), while also identifying trends that point towards newly critical aspects of emerging art. The show’s title— taken from W.H. Auden’s 1948 poem of the same name— suggests reexamination as well as novel imaginative departures that herald new beginnings.

    Watching and Waiting: VOLTA NY 2009

    Collectors show restraint, but VOLTA's introduction of a solo show format this year has generated positive feedback.
