Fred. Roeskestraat 96, 1076ED Amsterdam

Wouter Klein Velderman is participating to the “Gerrit turns 50, Willem only 28” that marks the anniversaries of the Gerrit Rietveld Academie and the Sandberg Instituut. An exhibition and public programme portray elements of the histories and communities of these educational institutes of fine arts and design.

Taking place in and around the buildings on the joint campus site in Amsterdam, a series of curated capsules include archival artefacts and a variety of works by students, alumni, tutors, directors and staff from the period 1968 to 2018.

Gerrit turns 50, Willem only 28 brings the past and present of the Bachelor’s at Gerrit Rietveld Academie and Master’s at Sandberg Instituut to the public, providing insights into progressive education and the pluriform collective of makers, writers and thinkers to which it gives rise.

During the exhibition, there will be a diverse range of events organised by the Gerrit Rietveld Academie and the Sandberg Instituut, which include lectures, performances and gatherings.

3 – 25 November 2018
Wednesday – Sunday from 1pm to 7pm
