Arnhem Mode Biennale IV is named AMBer.
AMBer shows that fashion is more than a piece of clothing. At the main location, an industrial plant from AkzoNobel, you will discover that disciplines like music, photography and film are part of the inspirational world of fashion as well.In the Museum for Modern Art Arnhem, the exhibition Get Real/ Real Self curated by artist/ researchers Joke Robaard and Giene Steenman shows the origin of everyday garments such as the T-shirt, the parka and the trousers.In the city center of Arnhem, the Gele Rijdersplein forms the starting point of the city program consisting of a city exhibition and a shopping and expo route.”(read more Arnhem Mode Biennale IV: “AMBer”)
