What's one of thé places to discover the best new talent? The Rijksakademie Open Studios during the Amsterdam Art Weekend! Here, you can spot the top artists of the future.

Traditionally, the Rijksakademie opens its doors to the public during Amsterdam Art Weekend. The prestigious institute is known for offering fifty exclusive two-year residences to talented artists, who are given the opportunity to refine their practice. The Open Studios are the only opportunity to get a behind-the-scenes look at these artist studios.

This program is exclusive to members of Young Collectors Circle. As a result of the government measures, we only have limited capacity, which means that we'll divide the participants into several time slots between 10 AM and 12 PM.

Studio Visit: Nazif Lopulissa

Wed 19:00 · Rotterdam · Studio Visit ·

Join us for a peak into the creative process of emerging artist Nazif Lopulissa, who will open the doors of his studio exclusively for Young Collectors Circle members.

Nazif Lopulissa is a Dutch artist whose work explores the ordinary. Graduated at the Willem de Kooning Academie in Rotterdam, Lopulissa started his career in graffiti and street art. His work is playful, bold, colourful and blurs the edge between imagination and reality. He has a fascination for playgrounds because of their inner contradiction between their playful appearance and the strict design rules on which they are built.

These allow you to discover new galleries and emerging artists, with pro tips from experienced art collectors. After confirmation of your participation, you can pick up an admission ticket and the audio tours at our desk in the entrance hall of the Van Nelle Factory.

Because only a small number of visitors are allowed in per timeslot, we have a limited number of entrance tickets available for members.

Buy your ticket for the fair online and make sure to scan the QR code at our desk in the entrance hall, in order to listen to the (free) audio tours.
