VOLTA, the Armory Show’s sister fair which was founded in Switzerland in 2005, revealed its 2015 exhibitor list and announced a new venue today. The fair, which takes place March 5–8, will be held at Pier 90 in Hell’s Kitchen on the far west side of Manhattan. The new location positions VOLTA even closer to the Armory Show than it had been in recent seasons—it’s been held in midtown and on Mercer Street in Soho.

This year, a total of 93 exhibitors will present at VOLTA, as compared with 98 last year. The show has become best known for carefully curated booths that typically showcase the work of just one artist. This year, over 80 percent of the galleries are repeat exhibitors, who participated in a previous edition. UNION Gallery, from London will show work by seminal British artist Rose Wylie, while BravinLee programs presents a three-decade survey of Thomas Nozkowski’c abstract paintings.

Among the new galleries to VOLTA is San Francisco’s Haines Gallery, which will spotlight, Monir Shahroudy Farmanfarmaian, whose four-decade solo survey opens at the Guggenheim in New York the following week (March 13).
