Contemporary art may be in constant flux, yet in many ways the 15th edition of VOLTA Art Fair should be no different from previous instalments: running concurrently with the more established Art Basel, and hosting smaller galleries with their hand on the beating pulse of the international scene, it will likely be the best place in town to discover visual artists on an upward trajectory.
This year, one such up-and-comer will be Mio Yamato, whose works can generally be characterised as monochromatic, pointillist and intricate. In conjunction with her group show at the fair, one of her pieces will grace the window of Aesop Spalenberg. The store is located a brisk thirty-minute walk from the former Coop Distribution Center, which will repeat as the fair’s venue after last year’s successful reception: there is something satisfying about hosting artworks in a logistical hub once used to move groceries and other everyday essentials, rather than the stuffy halls of a palace.
If you’d like to prowl the fair’s bustling alleyways, we are offering our valued customers a chance to win a Guest of Honour ticket for two. To claim the prize, art enthusiasts must simply answer the following question:
Which gallery will be representing Mio Yamato at VOLTA Art Fair?
Please note that, as tickets are in short supply, they will be awarded to the swiftest respondents to provide the correct answer.
