We are very proud to share with you that, our comrade and partner (respectively as director of Casco in Utrecht and after 2008 as director of The Showroom in London) as well as returning member of our tutorial team since 2008; the brilliant, radically generous 

Emily Pethick

has been appointed as the new director of the Rijksacademie. We wish to congratulate the prestigious two-year residency program in Amsterdam with this intelligent and vigorous choice for truly new directions, new conversations and new openings, for change-making female leadership. It goes without words that we, at DAI regret that after the summer Emily will not return as lead tutor in our Curating Positions study group, but we eagerly anticipate stimulative collaborations between our funky Roaming Academy and the stately "Rijks", in addition to our other cherished partnerships. Shared concerns, positions and inspirations will keep DAI in ongoing productive conversation with Emily Pethick and thus with the institution she will soon be leading.
