Save the Date: Best of Graduates 2024


Galerie Ron Mandos is proud to announce Best of Graduates 2024, opening on Friday, July 26th. Best of Graduates is the annual exhibition at Galerie Ron Mandos that gives a platform to recently graduated talents from art academies in the Netherlands and introduces them to the world of galleries, collectors, and curators.

Team Galerie Ron Mandos and Best of Graduates curator Radek Vana are currently visiting the graduate shows around the Netherlands to scout the talents of this year. Soon we will announce the participants of Best of Graduates 2024.

As is tradition, the winner of the previous year’s RM Public Choice Award has designed this year’s Best of Graduates poster. Last year, Fanja Bouts was chosen by the public as their favorite artist from the Best of Graduates 2023. A visual artist specializing in installation and illustration, Fanja’s work explores the contrast between the playful and the absurdly serious, creating chaotic scenes with non-linear narratives. Congratulations, Fanja!

The official opening of the exhibition takes place on Friday July 26th between 5:00 and 8:00 PM with a festive opening party and the presentation of the RM Young Blood Award at 6:00 PM by Suzanne Swarts, Director of Museum Voorlinden.
