DUBAI.- Coinciding with its 12th anniversary, Volte Art Projects will expand with a new gallery space in Dubai, opening alongside Alserkal Avenue’s autumn season and Expo 2020 Dubai. The UAE will become the gallery’s headquarters, adding to its roots in Mumbai and projects internationally.

Opening in an 8000 square foot warehouse in Dubai’s renowned cultural district Alserkal Avenue, Volte Art Projects aims to foster and evoke an experiential and creative milieu within the contemporary art scene. 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, reflecting and expanding on the innovative projects that have cemented the gallery’s reputation to date.

Founder and Director Tushar Jiwarajka says: “I’ve seen the region’s art scene grow exponentially in the past decade - hubs for contemporary art organisations have emerged, major institutional projects have come to fruition and a community of collectors has developed. Combined with the UAE’s proximity to Europe, Asia and the Americas, a gallery here therefore seemed the next logical step for us. Through a permanent space and dedicated programme in Dubai, we will have the opportunity to share with cosmopolitan audiences, immersive works by artists new to this market and to cultivate greater awareness through ambitious public art and private commissions.”

Vilma Jurkute, Executive Director, Alserkal says: "Alserkal has grown to become a blueprint for the region’s cultural economy, with Alserkal Avenue at the epicentre of the UAE arts scene, housing the most prominent art galleries showing both homegrown and international artist rosters. As Dubai’s art scene continues to mature, our artistic community here is also evolving and growing. We are delighted to welcome Volte Art Projects, which will contribute to this growth through its ambitious programme, further strengthening the arts ecosystem at large."

The opening group exhibition will bring together artists from Europe, South Africa, India, and the US, with many making their first appearance in the UAE. Presented will be new and recent installations, connected through art, technology, and nature, intersecting to give a sense of possibility and awe. The gallery also plans to collaborate with established artists new to its roster and introduce a talks programme of topical conversations around the global contemporary art scene.

Founded by Tushar Jiwarajka, Volte Art Projects (formerly known as Volte Gallery) represents and works on projects with renowned and celebrated international contemporary artists, including Sheba Chhachhi, Francesco Clemente, Wim Delvoye, Ranbir Kaleka, William Kentridge, Nalini Malani and James Turrell, as well as thriving artist collectives including Based Upon and Humans since 1982. It has spearheaded impactful projects by fostering new partnerships with art spaces, museums, and institutions worldwide, including Nalini Malani’s current immersive animation chamber, Can You Hear Me? (on view until 5 September) commissioned by the Whitechapel Gallery in London.
