Spinnin’ Yarns is a storytelling project initiated by Dolly Rogers, culminating in a limited edition series of silk screened t-shirt prints by Anne Britt, graduating student from the Amsterdam Fashion Institute (AMFI).
The t-shirt is an icon that has become ensconced in popular culture as a medium for wearable art and a soapbox for self proclamation. Long before social media, it stood as an off-line profile page to express your likes and dislikes, your criticisms and comments to the world.
“Through interviews, photographs and illustrations we reveal the heart and soul of Amsterdam and connect with the people who live, laugh, create, fall in love, explore and share our city.” (Spinnin’ Yarns)
A select location; the exhibition will be displayed in the Skylounge on the 11th floor of the newly built Mint Hotel. Enjoy panoramic views overlooking the stunning cityscape while getting a closer insight into the stories of the people who make this city home.
Spinnin’ Yarns invites you to join them for the opening of Spinnin’ Yarns on Thursday the 4th of August from 7-10pm. The exhibition runs until the 25th August 2011.
