Organisation Prix de Rome pursued by Mondriaan Fund
During a restructuring in 2011, the Ministry of Education, Cultural Affairs and Science decided that the organization and financing of the Prix de Rome would be assigned to the Mondriaan Fund. The objective of the prize dovetails with one of the most important goals of the public fund: to develop the talent of visual artists in the Netherlands. To ensure the continuity of the prize, the Fund also organizes the four-yearly architecture edition of the prize, in collaboration with the Creative Industries Fund NL and Het Nieuwe Instituut. Before, the prize was organized by the Rijksakademie.
The Mondriaan Fund organizes the prize in a modified form with respect for the history and development of the Prix de Rome. The first edition of the visual arts prize organized by the Mondriaan Fund took place in 2013, followed in 2014 by the architecture prize.
