Rijksakademie van beeldende kunsten

The Rijksakademie van beeldende kunsten (Amsterdam, NL) is an international residency program which provides time and space for research, experiment and production. We offer outstanding opportunities to emerging professional artists from both The Netherlands and abroad, to develop their work and ideas at the highest level.

Resident artists work in an individual studio in the former ‘Cavalry Barracks’ surrounded by approximately 50 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. Ideas can be developed in co-operation with a team of interdisciplinary technical specialists in well-equipped technical workshops. Furthermore there is a theory workshop offering a specialized art library, (historical) collections as well as a program with seminars and discussions related to topics arising from the artist community. Presentation of the work and connections to an international network form a part of the two-year residency program.

Every year, about 25 studios become available. The residency lasts one year and can be extended to two. You can apply for the 2016 residency by completing the online application form from January 1, 2015 at
