We curate, interview and showcase photographers from around the world at our space in athens, greece & here, our online publication.

We aim to exhibit influential and controversial emerging visual artists who belong to underground / alternative scenes from cities around the world that produce their art independently. We look for talents whose attitude and lifestyle inform their technique and work. We want our audiences to be exposed to beautiful and meaningful imagery.

Our curation focusses on work which is quality, progressive and contemporary. We look for artists who are provocative, incendiary, seductive and who challenge the traditions of art. At SIILK GALLERY we promote originality, free expression and are against banality and the commercialisation of human creativity.
