Gerrit Rietveld Academie annually presents SELECTED: an exhibition with work of exceptionally talented graduates. Participants of the exhibition have all been nominated during the Graduation Show for the annual ‘GRA Awards’ by an independent jury. This year's location will be Looiersgracht 60, where the exhibition will be held from 3-11 November 2017.
