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.

*** OPEN CALL***

From October 2016 to June 2017 the Rietveld Pavilion will focus on process-based projects, experimentation and investigations. Situated both within and outside of the institution, the Pavilion will host autonomous projects and allow them time and space.

If you would like to investigate, develop and share a project for a period of approximately three weeks and think that the Pavilion is the place for it, you are warmly invited to send your proposal to pavilion@rietveldacademie.nl

[Thanks for all the brilliant ideas and proposals! The schedule for the rest of the year is full.]
