Call for Applications Rijksakademie Residency 2022 / 2023
The Rijksakademie offers a two-year international residency programme to around fifty artists that provides space for research, experiment and production of new work. Residents are supported with a studio, a work budget and a stipend and can seek advice from leading art professionals from a wide variety of cultural and creative backgrounds. In addition there is a rich research and production infrastructure, consisting of various technical workshops operated by specialists, a library and a historical and contemporary art collection. Within the interdisciplinary environment of the Rijkskademie there is complete freedom in research and working methods.
Residency 2022 - 2023
The Rijksakademie invites applications from artists to develop their work over one or two-year periods in Amsterdam.
The Rijksakademie houses a highly international, multi-disciplinary, experimental and critically engaged artist community. Residents are supported with a studio, a work budget and a stipend and benefit from an array of opportunities for exchange, including peer to peer dialogue and visits from a wide range of leading art professionals. They have access to technical workshops as well as an extensive library and a historical collection. There is guidance by technical specialists, who foster hands-on, innovative and collaborative approaches to making.
As an artist, you are ready to make the most of these resources. You are open to challenging yourself, and to working alongside positions that are vastly different from your own. Spending up to two years in residence, you enter into an open-ended process where you can deepen your practices, and explore new territories, in and beyond the art field.
Selected artists usually have finished a BA/MA education, and must have at least 2-3 years of independent professional practice before starting a residency at the Rijksakademie.
Every year, about 22 places become available. Residents for the period September 2022–August 2023 are welcome with the possibility of staying one year more. You can apply by completing the online application form. Application deadline is 1 October 2021 (23:59 hours CET).
Artists who have held a residency in another post-academic institution in the Netherlands (Jan van Eyck Academie, De Ateliers) cannot be considered for the Rijksakademie. Please note that you cannot apply more than three times for a residency at the Rijksakademie, starting from the application for the residency 2021.
