Exhibition Studio Kling & Friends
Joni Kling is a Rotterdam based artist who founded her own brand after graduating from Willem de Kooning Academy. In 2019, she started a collective of Rotterdam women who work across illustration, performance art and fashion. Together they strive for a future in which slow fashion and strong women are central. During the Getting Closer Fashion Festival, Joni presents the work she created in collaboration with embroidery artist Thijs van Buuren, founder of Tegendraads and resident in De Wasserij, for the first time. To celebrate their collaboration and the cross-over between art and fashion, Joni also invites befriended designers and artists to join her in a temporary creative factory at De Wasserij. Expect an exciting and varied program in which art, fashion and dance come together as one.
