Under the fresh leadership of Lee Cavalier as Artistic Director, Volta Basel 2024 aims to attract “young and potentially dangerous” galleries, breathing new life into the art scene. Supported by a newly appointed advisory board, including prominent figures such as Sheila Arora, Ethan Cohen, Pamela Hraoui, Patrick Petermann, William Kaafarani, Carolina Conforti, François Rene Laurent, Julia Lechbinska, and Christian Marx.

The fair highlights emerging women in the art market. This year, more than half of the exhibitors are female-owned galleries.

Additionally, Volta Basel introduces ‘Firsts,’ a new curated section of the fair dedicated to new galleries making their debut in Basel. This section offers access to art market hubs from diverse regions.

Galleries include IPERCUBO from Italy, Lagos from Mexico, Odds and Ends from Hong Kong, Perve Galeria from Portugal, SKAL from the United Kingdom/Spain, TAMARA KREISLER Gallery from Spain, Wolf & Nomad from the United States, and Wunika Mukan Gallery from Nigeria.
