KABK graduates of Photography present their work

Photography Exhibition

The exclusive Exhibition 'Making Room' is being held in the Gallery of the Royal Academy of Art, The Hague (KABK) till the 4th of October, inclusive. For the first time in the history of the KABK fifty photography graduates will present an ode to the image. It is an exceptional exhibition which displays the quality of the Photography department in both breadth and depth.

The exhibition is a 'farewell exhibition' by photographer, designer and artist Guus Rijven who is leaving the KABK after 22 years of teaching. The KABK approached a hundred graduates with two questions. The first question was through which key image or series of works did they reach the status of becoming an independent and free artist. In other words, by creating which image did they become and remain a photographer. The second question posed was which image or series from their later works do they observe as playing a key role. Fifty photographers responded to these questions. Their two chosen works and the accompanying motivation come together in ‘Making Room’.
