About SALON/dantel

SALON/dantel in Istanbul is realised as a part of the 2.Istanbul Design Biennial Parallel Event Programme and is a travelling, custom-made exhibition based on the concept of SALON/KANT, held in the summer of 2013 in Amsterdam.

During 2.Istanbul Design Biennial ‘The Future Is Not What It Used To Be’, curated by Zoe Ryan, SALON/dantel presents work of artists and designers from The Netherlands which is related in a broader sense to ‘Dantel’ (‘Lace’), in conjunction with work of Turkish participants selected by Özlem Yalım Özkaraoğlu.
