Volta 14 Art Fair Tour through Kristen Knupp’s Eyes

Wednesday, October 17th, 2018

I traveled to Basel in June 2018, taking the train from Geneva and arriving at the Volta 14 Art Fair just in time to meet AWAD’s Susan Mumford, along with Volta’s David Goodman and Brian Fee along with our tour group.  A collaboration between Art Decision Magazine, AWAD and Volta, we met in the entrance of Volta’s new venue, a light-filled, spacious former industrial building housing about 75 international galleries.  The tours’ focus, fittingly given AWAD’s involvement, was to focus on showing our group women-owned galleries and women artists. We saw six galleries in total, the highlights of which are detailed below.
