Jul 15, 2022
Artesantader celebrates from this Sunday its 30th International Contemporary Art Fair, which can be visited from 16 to 20 July at the Santander Exhibition and Conference Centre Salón Bahía.
From RedCollectors we invite you to visit 13 galleries featured at the fair, as well as to buy and collect contemporary art.
1. Adora Calvo
One of the fundamental axes of the gallery's project is the visualisation of the formal and conceptual genealogies that have been produced in the Spanish context between the new generations of artists and their predecessors. In this sense, we are particularly interested in the connection between the main artists of Spanish conceptualism and minimalism and the new emerging artists who are generating their own reformulations of these artistic movements.
2. Álvaro Alcázar
The Álvaro Alcázar gallery focuses its attention on the dissemination of contemporary art. The gallery's programme is based on the representation and exhibition of established and mid-career Spanish and foreign artists. The gallery has different artistic disciplines such as painting, sculpture, photography and video. In addition to presenting an average of eight temporary exhibitions in its own space, the gallery collaborates with museums, cultural institutions and other galleries. It also participates in international contemporary art fairs.
3. Antonia Puyó
The Antonia Puyó Gallery opened its doors for the first time in October 1990, on the first floor of the first floor of Calle Madre Sacramento 31 in Zaragoza. Since its beginnings it has focused its interest on the latest trends in contemporary art and the promotion of new artists. Throughout these 29 years we have participated in fairs such as: ARCO, Art chicago, Art colonia and in recent years in emerging art fairs.
ATM is a gallery with an international vocation located in Gijón, Asturias. ATM focuses on the exploration and contextualisation of the latest artistic trends through a comprehensive programme that includes research projects and artist management in collaboration with other institutions whose aim is to delve deeper into contemporary visual culture.
5. Liquid Space
Espacio Liquido (Gijón, 2000). During his career he has represented and supported the careers of emerging and mid-career artists. Its promotional work focuses on the publication of catalogues, participation in international fairs, curated exhibitions, the incorporation of its artists in public and private collections and exchanges with other galleries. By creating a platform not linked to a specific space, Espacio Liquido seeks to bring contemporary art closer to all audiences, promoting activities such as guided tours of the exhibitions, talks organised in institutions on new ways of collecting, gallery development, etc...
6. F2 Gallery
In 2014, after a long career in the Spanish contemporary art sector, Paloma González and Enrique Tejerizo opened F2 Galería in Madrid.
The gallery proposes a dialogue between artists of different generations and origins, always seeking the solidity of projects that are developed in the long term. In the same way, we also promote contact with the public and with the work through visits to the gallery, in addition to our presence at fairs. Since its opening, F2galería has participated in all editions of ARCO, as well as in the fairs Estampa, Untitled (Miami), Artissima (Turin) and ARCO Lisboa.
7. Fernando Pradilla
Inaugurated at the end of 2001, the Galería Fernando Pradilla aims to promote and disseminate contemporary art developed in Latin America and Spain, acting as a bridge of knowledge of the artistic expressions of both continents.
Since its beginnings, the strategy has been based on the identification of emerging, mid-career and historical artists, and on the programming of solo and group exhibitions in Madrid and other Latin American cities. The gallery participates in international art fairs in Latin America, Asia and Europe, and promotes the representation of its artists in biennials, awards, competitions and exhibitions in national and international art centres.

Located in Gijón, its exhibition programme includes the work of mid-career artists alongside that of young creators, to whom the gallery offers a platform for the visibility of their projects and a commitment to the pursuit of their artistic careers. Always committed to a coherent line of quality and a close relationship with the artists it represents, who bring to the gallery a great creative richness through the use of different disciplines.
