The Rijksakademie van beeldende kunsten in Amsterdam is a working and meeting place for young professional artists from all over the world. Fifty studios are available for resident artists who work for one or two years on research, projects and production. A work period at the Rijksakademie is most valuable with three to five years of professional experience, following an art study programme. Focus on the work, reflection and discussion are central to the residency. In addition to advice from internationally-practicing artists, curators and other art professionals, facilities include extensive technical workshops, a library, artist’s documentation and art collections. Resident artists pursue all major contemporary visual art disciplines: painting, drawing, photography, printmaking, sculpture, video, film, sound and new media, and links with other disciplines such as architecture, design, theatre, music, dance, literature and film are possible.
Each year approximately twenty-five artists are invited for a residency. Artists can apply for the residency from January to December 2008 through the online application form.
The deadline for application is 1 February 2007.
