What measures are being taken by galleries to ensure visiting exhibitions is as safe as possible?
- Galleries will be responding differently depending on governmental advice and individual circumstance - often you will be required to book an appointment.
We provide the Shop to help galleries promote and sell their publications and editions to a worldwide audience.
