Rijksakademie van beeldende kunsten, Amsterdam / The Netherlands

January 26, 2012

January–December 2013

Apply before February 1, 2012.

The Rijksakademie van beeldende kunsten in Amsterdam (est. 1870) aims to develop top talent in the international visual art world and promotes the position of art and artists in today’s society.

By offering artistic, theoretical and technical support the Rijksakademie creates an environment in which about 50 emerging professional artists from all over the world can, for a maximum of two years, work on deepening, broadening and accelerating their profession—individually and socially.

In addition to facilities like a studio and a work budget, the residents can request feedback and support from internationally acclaimed artists and theorists, who are connected to the Rijksakademie as advisors. In professionally equipped workshops technicians collaborate with the artists in finding solutions to create their work. The presence of different media makes inter-disciplinary projects possible. Furthermore, the Rijksakademie hosts (historical) art collections, an extensive library and artists’ documentation.

Rijksakademie alumni include Carlos Amorales, Yael Bartana, David Claerbout, Ryan Gander, Runa Islam, Nathaniel Mellors, Michael Raedecker and Marijke van Warmerdam.

Each year, out of more than 2000 applicants, some 25 artists are invited for a residency. Artists can apply for the residency January–December 2013 by using the online application form.

A residency at the Rijksakademie has the most impact on an artists’ career with three to five years of professional experience before applying.

Apply before February 1, 2012.
