  • VOLTA NYC 2015

    Steven Zevitas Gallery will be at VOLTA NY, March 5 – 8, 2015. The booth will feature Franklin Evans and Ann Pibal.

    VOLTA NY is an invitational fair of solo-artist projects and is the American incarnation of the original VOLTA show, which was founded in Basel in 2005. VOLTA NY was conceived in 2008 as a focused, curated, boutique event that is a place for discovery. The exhibition showcases relevant contemporary art positions regardless of the artist’s or gallery’s age. By refocusing on artists through solo projects, VOLTA NY promotes a deep exploration of the work of its selected participants. These galleries must maintain deeply meaningful connections with their artists and follow them throughout their careers. In turn, invited galleries exhibit in an elegant venue, elevating their respective platforms for an experience mutually beneficial to fair visitors and the galleries alike.

    In March 2015, VOLTA NY inaugurates its new home location at PIER 90 in the neighborhood of Hell’s Kitchen, New York City. The landmark move positions it adjacent to Piers 92 and 94, the longtime platform for its sister fair, The Armory Show, and the focal point of March fair season. Moving to PIER 90 allows for synergy between both fairs and their collector bases while retainingVOLTA NY's distinct character and rigorous curation — the foundation for VOLTA's mission since its 2008 debut.

    VOLTA NY is a platform for challenging, often complimentary — and sometimes competing — ideas about contemporary art. Single-artist booths functioning more closely to proper exhibitions rather than traditional presentations proliferate the contemporary fair scene now. VOLTA NY has made solo projects its mandate and foundation from its inception in 2008, offering a prime opportunity to discover the practices of today's most salient artists while refocusing the art fair experience back to its most fundamental point: the art itself.

  • Andrew Masullo at the VOLTA Art Fair

    Steven Zevitas Gallery is pleased to present a solo exhibition of recent works by Andrew Masullo at the 2012 VOLTA NY Art Fair. Andrew Masullo’s hard-won paintings are notable for both their intimate scale and sophisticated use of color and form. Executed in oils, their "rightness" is derived from an intuitive, yet methodical adjustment of paintings’ most basic elements. In some cases, a painting can take years to complete, yet Masullo does not attempt to hide a given painting’s history, and prior adjustments and abandoned directions are often visible in a completed work.
     
    Masullo’s unique pictorial vocabulary of geometric and organic forms suggest potential reference points, but his paintings are ultimately about their own creation, not external influences; their meaning is immanent, rather than transcendent. Since the early 1990s, Masullo’s stated aim has been to produce paintings that have "no preconceived ideas, no personal or outside references, no pictorial imagery, no words, no numbering systems, no theories, no agendas, and no gimmicks".



    Masullo has exhibited internationally for more than two decades, and is currently included in the 2012 Whitney Biennial, which is on view through May 27, 2012.

    Steven Zevitas Gallery is will be located at Booth C2 at VOLTA NY. The fair is open to the public from 2 – 7pm on Thursday, March 8, and from 11 – 7pm from Friday, March 9 – Sunday, March 11.
