The first artist book and publication fair organized in Brazil, Tijuana celebrates 10 years of existence this weekend (3rd and 4th of August) with its 23rd edition. Organized in partnership by the Ministry of Citizenship, Casa do Povo, Tijuana Editions and Galeria Vermelho, Tijuana has specialized, since 2009, in connecting publishers in Latin America.

In this edition, in order to go beyondos limits of printed art, Feira Tijuana has a program curated by researcher Beatriz Lemos and artist Fabio Morais, including meetings and performances that include languages ​​such as slam, sound insertions and others.
