Art Observed was on site in Basel, Switzerland for VOLTA7, an art fair that focus on new and emerging art.  The fair runs until Saturday June 18th and is held at that Dreispitzhalle, located in the rapidly developing and artistically focused Dreispitz area of Basel.  This year the curators have placed emphasis on single artist presentations or on booth concepts that bring the work of two artists into dialogue with one another.  Seen at the fair were US collectors such as Susan and Michael Hort and Jerry Speyer, Martin Margolis and artists such as Takashi Murakami whose Kakai Kiki collective performed a tea ceremony to initiate the fair.   The following is a selective photoset of the Volta 7 offerings.
