The Graduation Show 2021 takes place at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie buildings from 7 until 11 July 2021.

The Graduation Show 2021 presents the work of around 170 graduates from all over the world. They have completed their four to five year Bachelor Fine Arts & Design at one of the fourteen departments. The exhibition marks both the end of their study and the start of a professional career.

Due to Covid-19 measures, it is necessary to book your time slot for a specific date and start time in advance. Time slots for these public opening days are available online from 23 June 2021 onwards.

Simultaneously with the Rietveld Academie Graduation Show, graduates of Sandberg Instituut Main Department Fine Arts and Temporary Programme Approaching Language show their work. The booked time slot gives access to both shows.
