Less than a week to go! The exhibition 'The Red Thread' will be opened in Gallery Kaleido, Uppsala, Sweden (see http://www.kaleidoo.nu/  for more information) at 12.00 o'clock on Saturday June 6th, by Pieter Ramaer of The Royal Netherlands Embassy. A number of Zone members will be there to represent Gallery Zone and meet members of the Kaleido collective.  
In September the exhibition comes to Leiden. On  Sunday September 5th, at 2.00 pm, the cultural attache from the Swedish Embassy in the Netherlands, Lisa Leistra, will open the exhibition at Gallery Zone. We hope some members of the Kaleido collective will be able to come to the Netherlands for that opening.
