Programming: VOLTA NY 2018
VOLTA NY continues to further it's position as a beacon for creative discovery and social engagement with a selection of specially curated and site-specific programs
Curated by Mickalene Thomas and Racquel Chevremont, this thematic exhibition–an array of freestanding museum-style walls–encourages dialogue between artists, and provides contrast to the traditional booth architecture and surrounding solo projects.
Featured Artists: Tomashi Jackson // presented by Tilton Gallery (New York); Troy Michie // presented by Company Gallery (New York); Devin N. Morris // presented by Jenkins Johnson Projects (New York); Christie Neptune // presented by Rubber Factory (New York); Kameelah Janan Rasheed // presented by Project For Empty Space (Newark); David Shrobe // presented by Studio 301 NYC (Brooklyn); Didier William // presented by Anna Zorina Gallery (New York); Kennedy Yanko // presented by Jenkins Johnson Projects (New York)
