Léna & Roselli Gallery will participate on VOLTA9, contemporary art fair in Basel from 10 to 15 June.


VOLTA, Basel’s platform for cutting-edge art and emerging international talent, lights up the industrial Dreispitz Areal in its ninth edition this June. 74 exhibitors stage contemporary projects, representing Europe and the Americas, plus the Middle East, South Africa, and East Asia, with 58 galleries returning from previous VOLTA incarnations.

Solo presentations frame VOLTA9’s focused format, with a third of exhibiting galleries spotlighting a single artist from their rosters.

  • Holton Rower (The Hole, New York). He activated his psychedelic pour paintings in a mesmeric performance in Fresh Basel, curated by the gallery at Villa Vecchia during Basel Week Miami 2012.
