A few days ago i got an offer to exhibit in a gallery in England.
Since I never got an offer to exhibit a few works I decided to go for it, inspite fairly high exhibition costs per m1 wall.
The contract for the exhibit was the following below here.
Does anyone of you know if this might be a good contract for me or is it only good for the gallery ? Are there crucial parts missing before I sign the contract ??
