WHATIFTHEWORLD is pleased to announce that Lungiswa Gqunta has been selected for the Rijksakademie Residency in 2019.
The Rijksakademie contributes to the development and renewal of the artistic practice by carefully selecting talented and ambitious artists for a work period. This two-year program offers artists theoretical, technical and artistic facilities. Research into, experimentation with, and development of the work are central aspects in the programme. The new group joins the 25 artists who started their residency in 2018.
The selection committee consists of internationally renowned artists and professionals who are attached to the Rijksakademie and act as advisors. The advisors guide and coach the artists during their residency through studio visits and theoretical guidance.
