Application now online!
VOLTA8, now open to application, will return to the Dreispitzhalle, at the heart of an urban regeneration project designed by Herzog & De Meuron. Close to the world-renowned Schaulager, Basel’s new cultural hotspot also hosts 16 local artists’ studios, allocated after a juried selection organized by the Christoph Merian Foundation; the foundation’s own project space “Basement” for graduates of the iaab international exchange program; the alternative independent art space OSLO10; a contemporary photography gallery; and the House of Electronic Arts, organizer of the annual Shift-Electronic Arts Festival.
With resounding positive feedback from collectors and curators for both the solo project concept of the NY fair and the newly stripped down Basel fair, with fewer exhibitors and mostly 2–3 person shows, VOLTA continues to be a fair where individual artistic practices can be discovered and more deeply considered.
The online application for VOLTA8 can be accessed by visiting the VOLTA website or by clicking here.
The deadline for applications is November 15, 2011.
