    What does "elle" refer to here? A store? A gallery? A person who collects art? The best English translation depends on the context.

    Whatever the exact phrase, it would be dedicates, not dedicate, and in English something is dedicated to something, not for.

    - If "elle" is a person:

    She dedicates herself entirely to african art.

    - If "elle" is a thing - like an art exibit - you use the passive without the reflexive word 'itself'.

    It's dedicated entirely to african art.
