As part of the Ties that Bind Biennale, State of Fashion has invited Fashion + Design Festival Arnhem (FDFA) to organise an Open Call for Arnhem-based makers.

Five Arnhem-related makers
Hankyul Jeong together with HongKai Li and Jiwoo Lee, Raven, Batuhan Demir together with Ülkühan Akgül, Sophie Roumans and Bas Kosters reflect on the theme of this Biennale with new work. Especially for this part, an exhibition will be set up in Rozet Arnhem, which will be on view free of charge from May 17 to June 30, 2024.

Open Call
From October 2023, Arnhem-related makers could apply for the Open Call. They were asked for a plan in which makers described their idea for an installation/presentation/performance around the theme of the biennale. The selection committee, consisting of Mode Partners 025, ArtEZ, Rijn IJssel, Rozet, the curators and organisation of State of Fashion and FDFA, have reviewed the 24 applications.
