    Dear Anna,
    I am a curator for a new non-profit art foundation based in Berlin. I became aware of your work through Ida Schonfeld on Facebook.
    Last year we put on four pop-up exhibitions in Berlin and this year we are expanding beyond Berlin. Our first exhibition of the 2018 will be a pop up in Stockholm in mid-April. If you like I can send you more information about what we do, just send me an email at

    I look forward to hearing from you.

    Suzy Royal
