  • About the Gallery
  • Address
The gallery, located in Santander, was opened to the general public in 1988 under the name of its founder, Fernando Silió. From its origins, the style of the gallery leads towards the most avant-garde tendencies of Contemporary Art, combining exhibitions by well-known artists with younger artists who are establishing their positions within the art market. In 1995 a new stage in the gallery began, incorporating to its activities the periodical edition of exclusive original prints and photography. In 1999 Juan Silió, son of the founder, takes on the direction of the gallery and starts to change the line of the gallery, incorporating artists of internacional renown, more presence of new technology and photographic works as well as more presence of young artists. The gallery started working with the main representatives of Spanish art outside, such as Joan Fontcuberta, Daniel Canogar or Darío Urzay while opportunities are given new values of this field as Carlos Irijalba, Rosell Meseguer or Miguel Ángel Tornero in the national field or Michael Najjar internationally. At the same time, the gallery continues with an interesting pictorial offer where are combined artists such as Juan Uslé, Juan Ugalde, Abraham Lacalle or Antonio Mesones with new and important values like Rafael Macarrón, Gorka Mohamed or Alain Urrutia. In 2005 the Gallery changes its location, opening a 300 m2 new space with a 100 m2 storage room, 150 m2 of exhibition space and 50 m2 of offices. There is also an external warehouse of 150 m2. In 2006, after the founder’s passed away, the gallery name was changed, being presented in ARCO 2007 under the current name: Galería Juan Silió. In parallel with the exhibitions, the gallery attends art fairs both national as international such as ARCOmadrid (since 1991), Untitled Miami, VOLTA NY or NEXTChicago.
