Rijksakademie van beeldende kunsten
1018 GW Amsterdam
The Rijksakademie van beeldende kunsten is an international residency program based in Amsterdam. During their two-year 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.
