Francisca Gigante holds many constellations inside. The curator has been crossing very bright spots in the universe of culture, such as the Peggy Guggenheim Collection in Venice, the MAAT in Lisbon and the Venice Biennale, for example. She is co-founder of the Tarimba collective and founder of the online platform "Friends In The Arts," which we talked about before the toast.

Maybe it's light years away, but you can find it."
