One thought on “Resume

  1. Chris Reid,

    Thank you for your exhibition proposal of March this year. We reviewed it during a planning meeting this week.

    Your work does not match our curatorial priorities in the near future, however your interest in the gallery is appreciated.

    Ingrid Jenkner
