I had a show at The Photographer's Gallery, London and The Untitled Gallery in Sheffield years ago. No money changed hands either way as I recall. I would have a very objective look at this "gallery"' and its intentions.
It only happens all the time.

if they approached you was it what i'd call a sales pitch ?

i.e. they are drumming up business renting out their space.


if its going to be free to you, are there percentages on sales that are reasonable ?

if all that looks clean and acceptable to you then why not.


make sure you understand all/any business term up front. if nothing is mentioned,
then mention it yourself, and have a contract letter drawn up, a letter of understandings.

good luck and i hope it all works out for the best

OK, a] you shouldn't be paying them. Quite honestly they can do that with any sucker, don't care about quality of work or sales. Paying them pays their rent.

Instead they should be paying you and / or taking a percentage of sales. They should also be promoting your display.
