VOLTA NY is a contemporary art fair comprised of solo projects by leading and emerging international artists. The American incarnation of the original Basel VOLTA show, VOLTA NY has since its 2008 debut operated as a beacon for creative discovery and social engagement during Armory Arts Week.

Led by Amanda Coulson, VOLTA’s longtime Artistic Director, VOLTA NY showcases contemporary art positions in an approachable way accessible to younger art-lovers and seasoned collectors alike. By spotlighting artists through solo projects, VOLTA NY promotes their galleries’ exhibition styles “at home” while refocusing the fair-going experience back to its most fundamental point: the artists and their works.


As with all fairs, an application fee is due with the submission of the proposal. However, since VOLTA recognizes the mounting costs for galleries, the fee is split into two payments concluding in a $295 total. The first payment of $150 is due with the initial submission. The remaining $145 will ONLY be charged if your gallery is accepted into the fair.

First Invoice: Upon acceptance, a 50% deposit for the stand and the remaining $145 of the application fee will be sent out with booth assignments. It is due upon receipt.

Second Invoice: The remaining 50% will be invoiced separately and will be due on February 15, 2019. Full payment is required for participation in the show.

This application requires up to 10 JPG-images (max. 300dpi). Files over 10 MB are unable to upload, so please re-size accordingly.

This application becomes a contract upon acceptance and follows the standards set out in the Terms and Conditions of Participation.

The application contains 5 steps. On the 4th step, before the final payment, you will be able to review and edit all entries of the previous steps. If you need to step away from the application and return to it at another time, come back to this homepage and continue your existing application by signing in with your email address.



If you have any questions or need assistance troubleshooting the application, please contact Chris De Angelis at chris@voltashow.com
