Application Rijksakademie residency 2020 (Rijksakademie van beeldende kunsten)
Deadline: 1 February 2019.
The Rijksakademie van beeldende kunsten invites applications from artists to develop their work over one or two-year periods in Amsterdam.
The Rijksakademie’s artist community has a unique ecology, which is highly international, multi-disciplinary, experimental and critically engaged. Artists are supported with a studio, a stipend, by a wide range of artistic and technical advisors, including artists, curators and thinkers, and have access to well-equipped workshops, a library and discursive engagement. It has a commitment to diversity, to working with a global perspective and with sensitivity to the local.
As an artist, you are ready to make the most of these resources. You are open to challenging yourself, to working alongside positions that are vastly different from one another, and to engaging with wider social and discursive programmes. The Rijksakademie is also interested in practices that maximise the social and transformative power of art.
Selected artists usually have finished a BA/MA education and have a few years of independent professional practice before starting a residency at the Rijksakademie, but there is no prerequisite to have undertaken a formal art education.
Every selected artist will have a studio, a stipend to contribute to living expenses (in 2019: €12,800) and a working budget (in 2019: €1,500). The Rijksakademie is generously supported by the Dutch government.
The Rijksakademie Trust Fund—in close cooperation with the resident artists—raises additional funds from private and governmental foundations, corporations and private donors, both nationally and internationally. Every resident artist is expected to raise a Fellowship of € 15,000 per year, as a contribution to the costs of the residency. Selected artists will be provided with more information on this procedure after the interview round.
Every year, about 22 places become available. Rijksakademie is seeking residents for the period beginning January-December 2020, with the possibility of staying one year more.
Deadline: 1 February 2019, 23:59 Central European/Dutch time (17:59 Colombian time)
