The Royal Institute of Art (RIA) in Stockholm hosts its first Rundgång, a student led initiative that encompasses an exhibition in an open studio format. Rundgång includes the participation of the BFA, MFA, Guest, and Projects Students currently enrolled at RIA to present three days of performances, events, and round table discussions open to the general public. RIA students will be involved in all aspects of production of the exhibition and its accompanying program, in its organisational aspects—in terms of montage and content development—as well as active participants as moderators for the conversations, exhibition guides, working with the press, and producing side-events.

Rundgång 2016 will be held at various sites throughout the Royal Institute of Art and throughout its multiple campus facilities on the island of Skeppsholmen in Stockholm. It is organized by RIA students and curated by Nathalie Åhbeck, Curator at Index–The Swedish Contemporary Art Foundation and Film i Samtidskonsten, Stockholm, and Oscar Carlson, Artistic Director, Issues in Stockholm.
