Deadline: 01 February 2016

Residency at the Rijksakademie

The Rijksakademie van beeldende kunsten in Amsterdam is an international residency program which provides time and space for research, experiment and production. We offer emerging professional artists from both the Netherlands and abroad an opportunity 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 connected to the Rijksakademie as advisors. Ideas can be developed in cooperation with technical specialists in well-equipped technical workshops, and interdisciplinary cross-overs are encouraged. Furthermore, there is a theory workshop offering a specialized art library and (historical) collections focus. Presentation of 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 but can be extended to two. You can apply for the 2017 residency by completing the online application form beginning January 1, 2016.
