CFA: Rijksmuseum Amsterdam, Summer Institute 2023 (28 July – 11 August 2023)

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. We will offer highly talented experts in the field of 17th century Netherlandish art the opportunity to connect, learn and develop!

The Summer Institute will immerse participants in the art and history of the 17th century Netherlands. Participants will be prepared to foreground the study of objects in their research practice and will explore how museums and research institutions operate as public-serving platforms for art, ideas, scholarship, and expertise in a time of intensified collaboration and rethinking of scholarly practice. 

The deadline for applications is February 5, 2023. The Summer Institute will take place between July 28 and August 11, 2023, in subsequently Amsterdam, the Netherlands, and Boston, MA, United States.
