A track suit for W139

In the coming two weeks the women of Ajkem’a Loy’a and I will develop the first proto type of a track suit for W139. W139, one of the main art spaces in Amsterdam, started as an artist run space in 1979.  In October 2009, W139 will celebrate it’s 30st birthday . For the occasion a limited edition of 139 track suits, produced by the women of Ajkem’a Loy’a and their bigger community, will be offered for sale in W139.
