Rijksakademie Call for Entries

The Rijksakademie Residency in Amsterdam is an international research and production place for emerging, professional artists from all continents. The Rijksakademie is more than a residency. It has extensive technical facilities, a library and an art collection. In addition, the Rijksakademie offers basic facilities such as a studio, assistance by technical specialists, a work budget, and mediation with accommodation and grants.

There are some fifty studios where resident artists work for one to two years on research, experiments, projects and production. Confrontation with diverse cultures and advice by internationally active artists, curators and others, promote the deepening, expansion and acceleration of artistic practice.
A period at the Rijksakademie has the greatest effect on an artists' career, three to five years of professional experience before applying.

Resident artists pursue every medium and technique: painting, drawing, graphics, photography, sculpture, video, film, sound and digital media. Artists can also explore links with other areas, such as architecture, theatre, music, literature and science.

Each year approximately twenty-five artists are invited for a residency. Artists can apply for a residency from January to December 2010 by using the online application form. The deadline for application is 1 February 2009.
