Rijksakademie Research Residency call for entries.

The Rijksakademie van beeldende kunsten in 
Amsterdam is a working and meeting place for 
young professional artists from all over the 
world. Fifty resident artists work for one or two 
years on research, projects and production. Such 
a work period is most valuable after three to 
five years of professional experience, after (the 
last) art education.

Concentration on the work, reflection and 
discussion are central to the residency.
Residents are supported on an artistic, technical 
and theoretical level by internationally 
recognized artists, art critics, curators and 
other advisors. Technical specialists advise on 
research, experiment and production; technical 
facilities with a broad range are at hand.

Resident artists pursue all major contemporary 
visual art disciplines: painting, drawing, 
photography, printmaking, sculpture, video, film, 
sound and new media, and can link up with other 
disciplines such as architecture, theatre, music, 
dance, literature and film.

The Rijksakademie has some fifty studios. Each 
year approximately twenty-five artists are 
selected for a residency. Artists can apply for 
the Residency 2007 (January  December) through 
the online application form.

The deadline for application is 1 February 2006.
