End exam 2010

Each year students from the final year present themselves to the public during Rietvelds Graduation Show. This year approximately 190 students graduated from several departments.

Our academy was transformed in one big exposition space and will showed works of students from Textile, Fashion, Photography, Image & Language, Glass, Ceramics, Graphic Design, Architectural Design, Fine Arts, Interaction Design-Unstable Media, VAV and designLAB.

The exposition took place July 7th - July 11th 2010.

This all took place in both Rietveld’s buildings in the Fred. Roeskestaat in Amsterdam and in the greenhouses built at the backside of our building.


The work of the endexam students can be seen at: finalworks/2010

Online catalogues

Every year the Rietveld Academie shows an overview of the endexam work in the so called 'Online Catalogue'.
Students of the department Photography are asked to photographe the work during the exposition and put online after the exposition. This year the endexam students also have the possiblity to put work online themselve.
