Rietveld Pavilion

Frederik Roeskestraat 96, 1076ED Amsterdam



The Rietveld Pavilion is a work space in a glass structure situated in front of the Gerrit Rietveld Academie. It is managed by Stefanie Rau (Critical Studies, Sandberg Instituut) and Marie Larsen (VaV, Gerrit Rietveld Academie). Continuing Kristine Nørgaard Andersen’s work in the Pavilion (2015-2016), Stefanie and Marie are now working on the project as a collaborative investigation of site-specific process-based projects. Their interest revolves around the unimagined results of projects that are given time and space to evolve, change and materialise in an open environment. The already existing conditions of the space have been altered and stretched in order to allow experiments, growth and further reflections. With a focus on sharing thoughts and processes they are looking for new ways of thinking about exhibiting within and outside the institution of the academy.

Cat Pavilion

by Teuntje Kranenborg

From May 2nd until May 15th, the Rietveld Pavilion will turn into the Cat Pavilion! It will become a social space, therefore anyone is invited to join: Do you have any works, thoughts, things, drinks, etc. that you would like to show, share, sell, try out, teach to/with others? Please send a message or email to: catpavilionrietveld@gmail.com

Cats can bring a family together

Ceramic cats can bring a space together

The cats function as punctuation in space

Like commas in a sentence

They create a pace for the environment

Provide a sense of comfort

Bring people together

The cats become a setting


For a series of events

For conversation
