This morning, Volta NY announced that it would move to Pier 90 for next year’s fair. Located directly beside the Armory Show’s home at Piers 92 and 94, the new site has just been renovated and offers 75,000 square feet of space for 90 exhibitors. Known as the Armory’s sister fair, Volta will run March 5 to March 8.
“Having celebrated our tenth anniversary in Basel by moving to a more mature and central venue, we felt that in New York it was also time to take the platform up a notch,” Volta artistic director Amanda Coulson said in a statement. “I’m more than excited to announce that Volta NY is settling in comfortably alongside its sister fair into the more accessible venue Pier 90, leveling the playing field and giving our galleries even better visibility and access to the crossover crowds already attending both fairs. As the scrappy baby in the family, however, we intend to maintain our different vision for presentations and layout and bring the inimitable Volta flair to the venue.”
