The Rijksakademie in Amsterdam opens its doors again this spring for its annual Open Studios. Over two consecutive long weekends from June 2–4 and 8–11, up to fifty artists in residence will share their artistic practice and present what has emerged from a period of experimenting, researching and producing new work. In addition to the multi-faceted studio presentations, there is an extensive programme of performances, films and talks. Visitors will have the chance to engage with the different practices and ideas the artists have developed that push boundaries of what contemporary art can be and do.

The Venice Editions
During Open Studios, the Rijksakademie presents “The Venice Editions,” with new work by Rijksakademie alumni Mire Lee, Müge Yilmaz, Monira Al Qadiri, Janis Rafa and Simnikiwe Buhlungu who participated in the main exhibition of the 59th Venice Biennale: The Milk of Dreams / Il latte dei sogni. This is the second set of artist editions which recognises the presence of Rijksakademie alumni in the international art field. All proceeds benefit the Artist Endowment Fund, which continues to provide the work budgets of current resident artists. Curated by Aveline de Bruin, the works from “The Venice Editions” will be on view from June 2, where the public can also purchase an edition.

Rijksakademie residency
The Rijksakademie is an international artist-in-residence programme. Over the course of two years, a diverse and multidisciplinary group of artists challenge themselves to deepen their practices and explore new territories, in and beyond the art field. Artists are supported with a studio and a stipend and enter into an open-ended process of artistic research and development. They have access to a variety of exchanges, including peer to peer dialogue, regular visits from a wide range of leading art professionals (advisors), technical workshops and guidance from technical specialists, and the library and historical collection provide a theoretical context that allows history to find its way into contemporary art practice.

Working from a global perspective, the Rijksakademie maintains an extensive network of alumni that stretches across the world. Its reach continues to grow with the current generation of residents, who originate from the Netherlands, Europe and beyond. The programme’s diversity creates an exceptional ecology for the production and exchange of art, knowledge and imaginative thinking, and contributes to the consistent presence of international creative practitioners in Amsterdam.

Amsterdam Art Week
Rijksakademie Open Studios kicks off during Amsterdam Art Week that turns the capital into an international hub for art lovers, collectors, art professionals and promising and renowned artists. For five days, you get to know the latest developments in contemporary art at the more than fifty participating galleries, project spaces, museums and residencies. They will present a varied programme of exhibitions, performances, screenings, lectures and artists’ talks. The 11th edition of Amsterdam Art Week will take place from May 31 to June 4, 2023.
