Designer Marga Weimans will present her first large-scale solo exhibition of the work of fashion at the Groninger Museum from 15 june to november 30 2014.

In her work Marga Weimans examines diverse themes, including identity, technology and beauty, which she ingeniously translates into eye-catching outfits with a strong graphic character. The exhibition presents a whole gamut of items, ranging from her very first collection, just after her graduation, to more recent collections and new work. A number of new works will result from several exceptional cooperative associations. This exhibition is an overview of Weimans early, recent and new work. Marga often works with themes related to technology and beauty. Her outfits are a combination of handcraft and high-tech but most of all: it’s pure fashion.

OMA*AMO collaborates with fashion designer Marga Weimans on the central installation of her solo exhibition.
With this project OMA*AMO continues its long standing investigation in the processes of fashion, for the first time in strict dialogue with a highly experimental designer.
The installation will challenge the limits between space and fashion in the form of an ambiguous hybrid, floating between a wearable space and an inhabitable dress.

Amsterdam Public Library (OBA)
From Saturday 21 June 2014, the Amsterdam Public Library will present a small-scale parallel exhibition, featuring a large part of the Debut collection.
