As a Dutch art academy often pronounced in one breath with adjectives along the lines of “critically acclaimed” and “prestigious”, The Royal Academy of Art The Hague is diligently heralded for its demanding bachelor, master and post-graduate degrees—some of which are constantly evolving and expanding. Nurturing a long line of talents, each bursting with creative skill, this coming Friday marks the start of a fully packed and diverse programme that offers an overview of this year’s excelling graduates.
Missed out on witnessing the KABK’s fashion design graduates’ grand finale as they marked their spot in line to fashion’s throne? Then this is the perfect opportunity to get a feel for future life under their reign. Alongside fashion design and textile students taking the stage, the Graduation Festival presents work from over 200 international students that will all be displaying the fruits of their labour. From fine arts, graphic- and interior design to photography and artistic research, the multiple disciplines allow for this year’s festivity to be an exciting and intriguing experience.
You’re invited to an eventful week of degree shows, performances, tours, auctions, workshops, award shows and even a football match. Explore the grounds of the academy and peek inside designers’ studios or gaze at the unconventional and eclectic mix of photographic expressions. And excite yourself over much more as you join in the celebration of each discipline and the students’ personal trajectories.
