A pioneering new gallery in Dubai bringing the best of international contemporary art and design to the Middle East.
Founded by Tushar Jiwarajka in 2009, Volte Art Projects (formerly known as Volte Gallery) represents and works on projects with renowned and celebrated international contemporary artists and collectives including: Sheba Chhachhi, Francesco Clemente, Wim Delvoye, Ranbir Kaleka, William Kentridge, Mario Klingemann, Nalini Malani, Humans since 1982, SMACK, James Turrell and Based Upon.
Over the past 12 years, it has achieved distinction as one of the most significant art initiatives in the Indian sub-continent. Today, following a move to the UAE, it envisions to become a leading gallery in the Middle East and aims to foster and evoke an experiential and creative milieu within the contemporary art scene, by showing works that often blur the boundaries between art, design, science and technology. The curatorial programme will help introduce and realise large-scale and monumental projects by artists celebrated for their pioneering spirit of innovation, pushing boundaries, and harnessing latest technologies.
Alongside its ongoing exhibitions programme, Volte has also spearheaded several impactful projects through partnering with various spaces, museums and institutions worldwide, including Nalini Malani’s recent immersive animation chamber, commissioned by the Whitechapel Gallery in London.
Volte Art Projects’ 8000 square foot gallery space is located in Dubai’s main cultural district, Alserkal Avenue.
