    Volta Review and Slideshow

    Volta After the relative ease of walking the aisles at Pulse, Volta, a sister fair of the Armory, was curated “The Age of Anxiety”, but such thematic unity was superfluous. Nevertheless, at Leslie Tonkonow, Ian Davis’s paintings were a perfect fit, suggesting murky conspiracy theories about cabals of drones with nefarious intentions.
