The Gerrit Rietveld Academie presents SELECTED: an exhibition and Afternoon Sessions in collaboration with Rietveld graduates of 2019 and Looiersgracht 60. 

SELECTED offers the artists an opportunity to present and share their graduation works with a wider audience. Additionally, by inviting members of the jury, various artists, lecturers, teachers and audiences to join them in the exhibition space, the artists will develop a range of open Afternoon Sessions to share and expand their individual, and sometimes collaborative artistic practices and research interests. The programme will be communicated and documented throughout the exhibition and participation will be open for everyone. 

This year, the external jury members of Autonomous Arts were Heske ten Cate (artistic director at Nest) and Martijn Hendriks (visual artist). The jury members of Applied Arts were Simone Trum of Team Thursday (graphic design studio) and Willem Velthoven (founding director of Stichting Mediamatic). The jury members of Thesis were Basje Boer (writer and filmjournalist) and Dominic van den Boogerd (art critic, art historian and former director of De Ateliers). 

The exhibition opening will take place on Sunday 27 October between 16.00h-19.00h at Looiersgracht 60. The Afternoon Sessions will take place every afternoon at 17.00h between 30 October and 3 November. Please note that Looiersgracht 60 is closed on Monday and Tuesday.
