Arte Abierto

Fundación Arte Abierto own seal and editorial line which seeks to reflect on contemporary art practices, based on publications that arise from its own exhibition projects. Through editorial exercises that try to expand the writing of art and put it in dialogue with other disciplines, as well as to think of the book as a space of creation and knowledge, their books delve into the artistic and conceptual proposals of the exhibitions commissioned and are presented specifically for Arte Abierto’s space.
