VOLTA10 returns to Basel from 16-21 June. This year the vibrant art fair has teamed up with GalleryLOG to produce a number of inspiring videos that take a closer look at the work produced by a number of artists appearing at VOLTA. This year’s films cover Melanie Bonajo, Kadar Brock, Peter Funch, Anthony Goicolea, Patrick Jacobs and Todd Pavlisko. The participants are involved in a number of different creative forms, including sculpture, interactive art, painting and photography. Officially released on 14 June, Aesthetica readers can watch an exclusive preview on the blog. Over the next few days we will be posting some of the insightful short films.
For Todd Pavlisko’s solo exhibition at the Cincinnati Art Museum titled Crown, the artist was granted permission from the City Council of Cincinnati and the museum to create a work within the museum with a sniper firing into a site specific sculpture. His work has been included in exhibition at the Bass Museum (forthcoming), Samsøñ, the Robert Miller Gallery, the Museum of Art & Design and the Cincinnati Contemporary Art Center. His work is in the collection of the Museum of Art & Design and the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.
VOLTA10 presents contemporary art galleries of global prestige whose artists represent new and relevant positions for curators and collectors alike. Focusing on businesses that choose to work with the most exciting emerging artists, VOLTA is the place to discover the best new practitioners at work today.
VOLTA10, 16-21 June, Markthalle, Basel, Switzerland.
