Mathild Clerc-verhoeven is part of Rietveld Review(ed) 2021. Nine graduates were chosen by an independent, external committee during the Graduation Show 2021 to reflect on the Graduation Show as a whole and to signal current tendencies and themes within the exhibition. They selected projects by graduating students that supported these observations. These graduates have been given the opportunity to show new work to a new audience in the academic year of 2021/2022. Mathild was selected twice, both for Thesis and for Visual Arts.
