June 30-July 15
Location: Amsterdam, Netherlands

With each new edition, SALON/ expands and connects her existing network with new participants; this time it contains the creative network of the Netherlands and Turkey, as part of the celebration of 400 years of cultural relationships (NLTR400), where SALON/ is invited to be part of Istanbul first official Design Biennial organized by IKSV.

SALON/Istanbul displays Dutch and Turkish fashion and product design, art and multimedia installations, divided over several locations. In particular, SALON/Istanbul will reveal a tip of the iceberg of the SALON/Istanbul workshop followed by 15 young and independent designers in preparation of SALON/TR during the Istanbul Design Biennial later this year. Far beyond traditional oppositions as between center and periphery, craft and concept, fashion and art, and commerce and autonomy, it primarily addresses how new generations of artists and designers work (together) and give expression to their ideas. But there’s more, new work of designers who participated on earlier SALON/ editions and many new ambitious talents will present themselves at SALON/Istanbul.

On that account, SALON/Istanbul transcends borders between fashion, art and design, both literally and figuratively.

SALON/istanbul is a co-collaboration with Dutch DFA, SICA, Het Nederlands Consulaat in Istanbul and ROMAN Hazır Giyim.
