Cataloguing Excellence: The Volta NY 2010 Artists’ Book

Presenting the cover of (and two artworks from) the Outstandingly Excellent and exquisite Volta NY 2010 Artists’ Book, the catalogue for Volta NY 2010, the strictly solo project art fair, now in its third year, taking place in New York, March 4 through 7. Reevaluating the concept of the traditional art fair catalogue, the 192 page Volta NY 2010 artists’ book is essentially an illustrated address book. Each of the 88 artists, artist collectives or collaborations showcased was given complete autonomy over double-page spreads to design an entirely new and fresh piece of work specifically conceived for this publication. Produced in partnership with Paris-based onestar press, a collection of books, multiples and movies by artists, the Volta NY 2010 artists’ book is available for purchase, for $20, during the fair, on the 11th Floor, at 7 West 34th Street, between 5th Avenue and 6th Avenue.
