One Nest Stand

One Nest Stands are yearly exhibitions hosted and organised by Nest in collaboration with the Royal Academy of Arts The Hague (KABK).

Students of the KABK are invited to respond to an exhibition at Nest through an open call. Central themes from that exhibition are then translated into new work by the students. The are guided in their process by three professional coaches.

One Nest Stands were originated as exhibitions that lasted for just one night. By now they have been expanded to be on show for the duration of one weekend.

Nest organizes various educational programs for children, secondary school students and (art) students.

At Nest, we value education in the broadest sense of the word: by learning, watching and doing. We want people to learn and think (critically) in different ways. Nest invites conversations with artists and discussions about the artworks and current topics in our exhibitions. We do this, among other things, through workshops, tours and lectures.

Nest also develops long-term educational programs together with institutions (such as art academies, secondary and primary education and other partners) in which contemporary artists and thinkers are invited to act as mentors to provide guidance in the process of creating and contextualizing.
