Rijksakademie van beeldende kunsten
1018 GW Amsterdam
The Rijksakademie van beeldende kunsten (Amsterdam) is an international residency program. During their two years’ residency, emerging professional artists are stimulated to reflect critically on their work and break new ground. They are offered artistic, theoretical and technical support within a well-equipped working environment.
Resident artists work in an individual studio surrounded by approximately 45 peers from all over the world. Ongoing dialogues take place with a group of prominent artists, theoreticians and professionals from other disciplines, who are connected to the Rijksakademie as advisors. Furthermore, there is a theory workshop offering a specialized art library and (historical) collections. Presentation of the work and connections to an international network form a part of the two-year residency program.
Selected artists usually have finished a BA/MA education and have a few years of independent professional practice before starting a residency at the Rijksakademie.
