And "Focus Africa", curated by Gabriela Salgado in which Zimbabwe Gallery First Floor Gallery, Filomena Soares (Lisbon), Carlos Carvalho Contemporary Art (Lisbon), Andre Magnin (Paris), A Palazzo Gallery (Brescia) and Carles participate Projects Taché (Barcelona). Africa Focus is defended by De Blas because "contemporary art no longer belongs only to Europe and North America."
