  3. Dear Gail

    As we would like to show the work of Mohamed Larbi Rahali so much in our Kunstraumlangenlois
    in Austria, maybe you could give us his address and make a contact for us?

    That would be great. we have a show here with nearly 40 artists, many of them international
    well-known artists, but it was not able for us to reach Mohamed Larbi Rahali. So his name is
    announced in our invitation, but his work is the only missing one.
    So maybe you can help us.

    in the meantime thank you and best wishes and regards from Austria

    Christina Lackner and Norbert Fleischmann
