UN LIBRO ES… A NEW STORY TO START THE YEAR.
With a selection of INDEPENDENT PUBLISHERS who have explored and played with book formats.
Arte Abierto begins this year with the 2nd edition its editorial program Un libro es… with a gathering and editorial sale where you will find books for children, young people, adults and art lovers.
A selection of INDEPENDENT PUBLISHERS will join Arte Abierto that have explored and played with book formats, including:
piedra ediciones is a series of publications that arise from conversation and processes that conceive the book as a space for experimentation for artistic projects, considering the book as an ideal space for collaboration and exchange. Each title becomes a multiple and simultaneous piece that makes new readings possible.
