The University of Amsterdam and Gerrit Rietveld Academie offer a multidisciplinary Honours Programme: ART and RESEARCH. Seventeen outstanding students are selected from the Rietveld Academie, the VU and the UvA to spend fourteen months pursuing project-based artistic and academic research under the tutelage of distinguished lecturers and industry professionals. To conclude their programme, graduating students organise and present an exhibition, which this year is entitled Digging Grounds/Kaput. The exhibition is realised under the supervision of Anja Novak (head of department), curator/artist Mariana Lanari, Maartje Vliervoet and Paula Albuquerque.
Digging Grounds/Kaput will be hosted by Looiersgracht 60 from April 14-15 and will be accompanied by a publication about the student’s work. The pieces on show are collaborative with the students working in groups of five to create their final pieces. Looiersgracht 60 enjoys providing a public platform for talented young artists, especially those working in a collaborative, exploratory and interdisciplinary manner.
