2 till 10 June 2012

At the invitation of NAiM/Bureau Europa and Marres, SALON/ presents SALON/Maastricht. SALON/ is a platform for fashion, design, art and culture, where both young and upcoming talents and established designers and artists present their work on various locations throughout the city, creating a cultural route.

Every location leads to a specific presentation, which can take the shape of an installation. SALON/ aspires to stimulate the interaction between designer, public and space, where experience takes central stage. 

With each new edition, SALON/ aspires to connect the existing network to new participants; this time to a creative network in Maastricht and the Euregion. Far beyond traditional oppositions as between center and periphery, craft and concept, fashion and art, and commerce and autonomy, the project primarily addresses how new generations of artists and designers work (together) and give expression to their ideas.

SALON/Maastricht is realized in collaboration with Marres, NAiM/Bureau Europa and FASHIONCLASH.
