Volte has been central to the Mumbai art scene since its launch in 2009. It will soon launch its artist residencies, away from the art district of downtown Mumbai, where this gallery is based. Existing to provide a platform for non-traditional art and culture in the city, it constantly strives to add to the arena of Indian art as well as to help form and mould trends and movements.
Volte, as an art space, is a radical shift from the traditional gallery model. Instead, it brands itself as an exciting place for intellectuals, writers and artists to gather. Located in the heart of the Colaba art district there is an exhibition space, a bookshop, a café, a film club and a platform for public art. Artists represented include Mukul Deora and Tara Kelton.
