On March 2nd, the VOLTA NY was opened on PIER 90 in Hell’s Kitchen, New York, adjacent to The Armory Show. In contrast to its partner art fair The Armory Show, the VOLTA exhibits exclusively emerging artists, focusing primarily on their solo projects. We at Art and Signature were present and would like to bring you our top ten favorite emerging artists at VOLTA NY.
