Artesantander 2022: The fair already has the 42 projects selected for its 30th edition

• The proposals, artists and applicant galleries stand out for their high level of quality.
• The Bahía Hall of the Palacio de Exposiciones y Congresos de Santander will host this year’s event.

Artesantander 2022 has received a total of 85 projects, 78 of which have been definitively assessed by the selection committee, as several were rejected for not meeting any of the participation requirements.
78 projects from 78 national and international galleries that competed for the 42 stands at the fair. The organization is committed to maintaining the number of stands and its hallmark: ’42 spaces turned into small museums within the reach of its visitors’.
This 2022 edition presents an excellent list of proposals and galleries for this thirtieth edition. The galleries applying to participate in the fair are increasingly adjusting their projects and quality, along with their approaches, and are more and more adapted to the concept of a project fair that somehow wants to be a still photo of the Spanish and international gallery scene.
In the opinion of the selection committee, out of the 78 projects presented, more than 60 were worthy of being discussed. These are artistic projects that are increasingly tighter and with more intention, which to some extent means more work and more decision making on the part of the fair. Artesantander is more than an art fair, it is also a cultural event, and therefore, sensitive to new artistic languages that somehow refreshes the scene a bit.

From the organization of the fair we highlight this fact and something that is highly valued by the institutions that support the project (Government of Cantabria through the Vice-Presidency – Ministry of Universities, Equality, Culture and Sports; and the City Council of Santander): The consolidation of an international project of Contemporary Art, in a difficult national and international context, and despite the suspension of the 2020 edition due to the health crisis. Artesantander remains in time and adds support and important incorporations every year.
The selection committee of the Fair has been formed on this occasion by: Alejandro Alonso Díaz, (Santander 1990) is director and curator of Fluent, a para-institution dedicated to contemporary art and research that presents exhibition cycles, texts and public programs. Javier Díaz Guardiola (Madrid, 1976) has a degree in Journalism from the UCM. He began his professional career at Agencia EFE and ABC newspaper. He currently coordinates the art, architecture and design sections of ABC Cultural and ABCdeARCO. He is the author of the contemporary art blog « Siete de un golpe ». Vanessa H. Sánchez runs the Silvestre gallery together with Pep Antón Clua, a gallery specializing in contemporary painting. She has a degree in Art History and a Master in Analysis and Management of Contemporary Art. María Regina Pérez Castillo, (Loja, Granada, 1989) holds a PhD in Art History from the University of Granada. Since 2011 she has been collaborating as an art critic for journalistic media such as Diario de Sevilla or Granada Hoy. At the same time, she has developed her career as a curator in art galleries. Carmen Quijano, (Santander, 1976) has a degree in Art History from the University of Salamanca. She is a cultural manager, independent curator and designer. Responsible and co-director of the Confluences Program and the Espora Project.
Cantabria will have the presence of several galleries: Espacio Alexandra, Espiral, Exhibit, Juan Silió, and Siboney, all of them galleries belonging to the Association of Art Galleries of Cantabria.
