    A Mumbai-based gallery specialising in contemporary art and collaborative projects, Volte Gallery was established in 2009 by Tushar Jiwarajaka.

    The gallery aims to move away from the closed, private models of galleries towards a more public profile by enabling artist projects through partnerships with public-facing institutions such as Kiran Nadar Museum of Art, Goethe Institut and Dr. Bhau Daji Lad Museum and collaborations such as partnering with the INKtalks conference in 2012 to curate their art section. The gallery represented artists working in newer mediums, such as Sheba Chhachhi and Nalini Malani, who pioneered the installation form in India. It also represents younger contemporary artists such as Tara Kelton and Mukul Deora and has shown works by artists such as William Kentridge and James Turrell.

    Initially situated at Colaba, Mumbai, where it also had a bookstore and cafe, the gallery has now been relocated to Worli, Mumbai, with the aim of making it more accessible.
