JUNE 13-18 – 2016 / MARKTHALLE BASEL
yay, I can not wait for the Art Basel week to come where Basel turns into a beautiful international art circus and like the years before VOLTA is showing inside Markthalle, very close to the SBB train station.
my main focus this year will be on Bonnie Maygarden and her works. (you can see one of my favorite above, its called GRAYSCALE II) there is going to be one very special artwork, exhibited in Basel, and I am going to show and tell you more about it very soon here on the blog.
but first let me tell you a bit about VOLTA and their exhibitors.
VOLTA, the renowned art fair for new international positions, debuted in Basel in 2005 as a collaboration between dealers and friends. The aim was to secure a platform for international galleries beyond young art stalwart Liste and market heavyweight Art Basel. Concerns and aspirations of the exhibiting gallerists have been first and foremost since VOLTA’s inception; in combination with the curatorial mind of Artistic Director Amanda Coulson, eclectic and dynamic presentations with a strong focus on solo presentations find a stage as refined as at the main fair. VOLTA has already created a brand known and respected for its strict selection of exhibiting galleries and artists, including a growing list of alumni who have graduated to the main fairs. Former exhibitors like A Gentil Carioca (Rio de Janeiro), STEVENSON (Cape Town / Johannesburg), One and J. Gallery (Seoul) and bitforms gallery (New York) ascended to Frieze and Art Basel after exhibiting at VOLTA. Likewise, artists including Theaster Gates, Chris Johanson, Zilvinas Kempinas, Cameron Platter, Araya Rasdjarmrearnsook, and Adrian Williams have shown in prestigious events like the Venice Biennale, the Orangerie (Paris), dOCUMENTA, Art Basel’s Art Parcours and Art Unlimited, following their featured showings at VOLTA.

I absolutely love his works and I adore the way he made them. silk screen print on wax that later will be heated and cause the change of the lines and patterns.
about MITSO KIM
I really like the work of Claire Shegog. She uses the little ballerinas from the jewelry jukeboxes and gives them new dresses, hats and accessories. of course I am attracted to everything shiny and bling bling and most likely thats why I am so in love with her work.
