For its eleventh anniversary, VOLTA takes place at Markthalle, the historic landmark not far from the station. Founded in Basel in 2005 by three international dealers, it is a platform for contemporary art galleries of global prestige who choose to work with emerging artists.  The 2015 edition includes exhibitors from six continents. The emphasis is placed on solo projects or galleries that bring the work of two artists into dialogue with each other. This careful curating allows even exotic art to appear familiar.
