VOLTA NY | March 5-8, 2015, Pier 90, New York

VOLTA NY debuts at PIER 90 in Hell’s Kitchen, New York City, in the solo-project fair’s eighth stateside edition on March 5 – 8, 2015. 93 galleries across six continents converge on the new venue, situated adjacent to sister fair The Armory Show, delivering a dynamic survey of emerging and innovative contemporary talent by artists from 34 nations.

This year, over 80 percent of galleries have shown in prior VOLTA editions, both in New York and in Basel, exemplifying the fair’s distinctive identity as a boutique platform for new and salient contemporary art positions within a curated (and, in the case of New York, solo-project) format — the foundation of VOLTA‘s mission since its 2005 Basel inception and arrival stateside in 2008.

Curated by Mel Bochner in collaboration with Magazzino Italian Art, This Special Exhibition Examines Parallel Artistic Movements in the 1960s and 1970s in the U.S. and Italy through the artwork of Bochner, Alighiero Boetti, and Lucio Fontana. Cold Spring, NY – August 24, 2020 – This fall, Magazzino Italian Art opens a special exhibition examining the formal, conceptual, and procedural affinities in the work of Mel Bochner, Alighiero Boetti, and Lucio Fontana. Curated by Bochner in collaboration with Magazzino, the exhibition marks the first presentation to consider the American artist’s extensive, yet overlooked, engagement with the practices of Fontana and Boetti, as well as with Italian art at large. Bochner Boetti Fontana offers, through the artist’s perspective, a number of resonances between his work and that of the Italian and Italian-Argentine artists: an exploration of systems, language, and materials; and a sense of irony and humor, often and especially shared by Arte Povera and Conceptualism, as all these works opened the work of art onto the space of display.

Interviews | September 21, 2020

"Art represents for me a 'ligne de vie'. I have been painting since my 15 years: since then, artistic practice has accompanied all my experiences as a girl, woman, mother. My only safety net in the most difficult situations, today represents the way to seek beauty in the objects and materials we use every day. I often work starting from a material that already carries a story in it, because it has been found, extracted and reused. It may perhaps be recognized by the people who had it in their hands. Somehow, it tells a collective story, piecing together, to establish bonds, but at the same time fixing my experiences." Read more
