BASEL, MAY 8, 2014: VOLTA celebrates its decade edition as Basel's renowned art fair for new and emerging art from June 16 to 21, 2014. VOLTA returns to Markthalle, the historic domed landmark situated in the heart of Basel and former venue of VOLTA5 in 2009. This year, beneath Markthalle's recently renovated rotunta, 68 exhibitors from six continents converge to mount a compelling discourse of contemporary projects, including over 50 galleries from previous Basel editions and featuring some of VOLTA's distinguished 'alumni' galleries. Two returning exhibitors have participated in every VOLTA Basel edition, along with VOLTA NY's debut 2008 fair: Galería Enrique Guerrero (Mexico City) delivers an of-the-moment survey of new works from its international program, including Colombian sculptors Daniel Gómez, Miler Lagos, and Bogotá duo MANGLE, plus Czech figurative alchemist Richard Stipl and Mexico City-based photographer Daniela Edburg; while David Risley Gallery (Copenhagen) stages a summary of gallery greats, including Swedish narrative painter Anna Bjerger, ebullient Pop scavenger Alex Da Corte (subject of recent solo outings at Institutes of Contemporary Art in Portland, Maine and Philadelphia), and the inimitable Keith Tyson, winner of the 2002 Turner Prize.

Plus, other 'graduated' and recurring exhibitors from pre-Markthalle iterations each contribute salient selections to VOLTA10: Galerie Jochel Hempel (Leipzig/Berlin, VOLTA1) juxtaposes five 17th Century masterpieces from the Rusche Collection with five gallery artists shown at VOLTA over the years; Pierogi (Brooklyn, VOLTA2) conceives a multigenerational dialogue in four voices, anchored by expressive drawings by downtown iconoclast Kim Jones -- whose expansive career includes Pacific Standard Time (MoCA, Los Angeles), the 2010 Biennale of Sydney, and the 2007 Venice Biennale's curated group exhibition -- along with works on paper by David Scher, photography by young Berlin-based artist Nadja Bournonville, and Patrick Jacobs' signature mesmerizing lenticular vitrines; Samsøn (Boston, VOLTA4) spotlights experiential renegade Todd Pavlisko, subject of the major installation Crown on view now at the Cincinnati Art Museum, and Steve Locke, whose 2013 catalogued survey there is no one left to blame at the Institute of Contemporary Art (Boston) travels to Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit later this month; and Michael Janssen (Berlin/Singapore, VOLTA4) contrasts a monumental in situ sculpture by Stijn Ank, recent artist-in-residence at Casino Luxembourg - Forum d'art contemporain (Luxembourg), with new enameled ceramic paintings by Monique van Genderen.
