Among the Cu­ban ar­tists that will par­ti­ci­pa­te in the main sec­ti­on are Los Car­pin­te­ros, with the For­tes D'alo­ia & Ga­bri­el ga­llery (Bra­zil); Carlos Ga­rai­coa, with Lui­sa Stri­na ga­llery (Bra­zil); Quis­queya Hen­rí­quez with Sin­di­ca­to, and Carlos Mar­ti­el with Y-ga­llery (Uni­ted Sta­tes).

Artbo emp­ha­si­zes the lat­ter in a spe­ci­al way, con­so­li­da­ting the va­lue of the ima­ge cap­tu­red in this di­gi­tal age, from car­di­nal na­mes that ha­ve en­ric­hed with their work the­se ex­pres­si­ons at in­ter­na­ti­o­nal le­vel.
