Graduation Festival 2018, Royal Academy of Art (KABK), The Hague

Quentley Barbara

I went to the Royal Academy of Art to write a review for Villa La Repubblica of this year’s graduation show of my old school. Click here to read the review in Villa La Repubblica (in Dutch).

Like last few years the quality is quite high.

So much so that our provincial town of The Hague can hardly swallow it.

Constantijn Scholten

As i have written quite extensively in Villa La Repubblica i leave you here with some things that caught my eye, including details of works by artists i discussed in the VLR review.

Constantijn Scholten

I wish all graduates the very best and i hope their work will gain some meaning in our harsh world.

Thursday July 12th is the last day you can see the show.

Halfway Where; Former Gemak exhibition space, The Hague

Constantijn Scholten

Today was the last day of a three day exhibition of 3rd year students of the Royal Academy of The Hague (KABK). The show was co-ordinated by Eliane Odding. Generally the students are talented and expectations for next year’s graduation show are high as far as i am concerned.

Personally i wish them to have some nerve, some more audacity to take more radical decisions in their works and presentations and in the use of technique.

Sam Andrea

For instance Sam Andrea is quite a good painter, but more technical skill in the use of colour and paint as a material could make his paintings more interesting.

My favourite presentation is the one by Rafael Vasilyev, who clearly has an idea of how to make an installation.

Valters Palaps

Seiko Hihara

Valters Palaps and Seiko Hihara have interesting installations but i’m sure they can make more out of the relationship between their objects and the space they are presented in.

This is not the place for an analysis of all works on show but i’m sure next year there will be more.
