During the Graduation Show 2020, guests, collectors and soon-to-be-collectors have a chance to bid for graduates’ artworks online. Graduating students and teachers alike have placed their artworks up for auction in the service of their community. It’s a fundraiser: profits go to Berlagefonds (Berlage Fund) to help students in financial need.

Dead Darlings in collaboration with the Student Support Group and the Academy, has invited all graduating students and teaching staff to submit a “dead darling”, a unique artwork that has been reluctantly discarded during the artistic process. 

Participants are all listed, but names are revealed only after the final sale.

Check it out at auction.rietveldacademie.nl and place your bid.
