Tip of the Week: Rijksacademie Open 2017
Every week a Spring House member will share with us a tip: a favourite movie, a must-read article, an event we cannot miss this weekend or just some general life advice.
Here’s this week's tip by Francine Mendelaar from Fonds Kwadraat, an organisation that offers financial support for starting and known artists.
Is there an expo we have to see in Amsterdam?
Yes, the Rijksacademie Open this weekend! A fantastic opportunity to see what the first year and second year residents of the Rijksakademie are working on. Every year they open up their ateliers to the public.
The artists come from all over the world, all working with different disciplines such as video, sculpture, performance and painting. A unique chance to see which new ideas and techinques are developing.
There will be guided tours, performances and a movie program!
Is there an artist who arouses your interest?
I’m curious about the work of artist and designer Rutger de Vries. He will present a computerized spraypaint selfie printer.
