The RijksakademieOPEN is an exciting opportunity to meet the artists, and find out about their work. It takes you on a voyage of discovery in the studios of young artists from all corners of the globe. An exciting, dynamic way to encounter the latest in contemporary art.
Attracting thousands of visitors each year, the open studios weekend has become the most
celebrated presentation of the cream of young artistic talent in the Netherlands. Enjoy presentations in individual studios, along with group presentations, special projects, performances and discussions in unexpected places.
The open weekend not only offers a glimpse of what goed on in the studios at the Rijksakademie; it is also a rare opportunity to explore the building itself.
