The SALOON Network is the conglomerate of the SALOONS in Berlin, Paris, Brussels, Hamburg, Dresden, London, and Vienna. As an international network for women in the arts, we have branches in seven different cities in Europe right now and we are constantly growing. The exchange between members of each city is a very important part of the network and we are encouraging our members to get in touch with the SALOON board members when traveling.
In 2018, the board members of Berlin, Paris, and Vienna initiated the first SALOON EXCHANGE WEEK, where members of each city swapped their places and stayed in their guest city for a week. The host cities organized an extensive program during that week, including museum and gallery visits, members networking events, public talks, fair visits, portfolio reviews, and many talks during dinners and drinks. Below you can find a round-up of last year's EXCHANGE WEEK.
In the future each SALOON will host EXCHANGE weeks again.
