Rijksakademie van beeldende kunsten

The Rijksakademie van beeldende kunsten has three statutory functions:   Residency: By offering artistic, theoretical and technical support the Rijksakademie creates an environment in which approximately fifty-five talented artists from all over the world can, under optimum circumstances for a maximum of two years, work on deepening, broadening and accelerating their profession – individually and socially. Prix de Rome: Organises the Netherlands’ “state” prize for artists and architects up to the age of thirty-five. The prize focuses on excellence and professionalization in an international context, tracing talent and spotting trends in the Netherlands. Collections: Manages collections (library, art and other collections and artists’ documentation). The Rijksakademie collections comprise, among other things, books and periodicals in the library, artists’ documentation, and the historical and contemporary art collections.
