Netherlandish Art: Now and Next
Take part in a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for emerging experts in the field of Netherlandish art to connect, learn, and develop! In summer 2023, the Rijksmuseum, RKD – Netherlands Institute for Art History, Center for Netherlandish Art (CNA) at MFA Boston, and Harvard Art Museums will co-facilitate the Summer Institute for Netherlandish Art, a unique international programme open to 16 participants.
When: July 28–August 11, 2023
Where: Amsterdam, the Netherlands; and Boston, Massachusetts, United States
Focus: Netherlandish Art of the “Long 17th Century” (about 1560–1800)
Open to: MA students, PhD candidates, and emerging professionals with fewer than five years of experience working in either a university or museum setting. Open to candidates of all nationalities
with a background in art history or related field within the humanities, as well as conservation and conservation science.
About the Programme
Over two weeks in and around Amsterdam and Boston, participants will closely interact with an interdisciplinary team of researchers, curators, conservators, educators and scientists from the four organising institutions. Participants will emerge from the Summer Institute with enhanced tools and perspectives for conducting innovative object-based research, and for using their expertise and enriched collaborative and interdisciplinary outlook to increase the public’s appreciation for Dutch
and Flemish art. They will be able to safeguard existing knowledge and share it in new, engaging ways that meet the needs of contemporary audiences. Important components include but are not limited to gallery visits, hands-on sessions in conservation studios, panel discussions, creative art making and other activities that build a lasting international network among peers and established experts.
