Eye Research Labs provide scope for a new generation of curators and artists to hone their skills. Students from different art academies and universities are asked to put together a programme featuring their own work and films from Eye’s collection. Research Labs do not follow a strict format and often result in a cultural crossover between film and other art forms.
During the yearly Research Labs presentations, Eye is a hub for students of academies and universities who flock to present their own work and view that of others.
The academies participating in the Research Labs are Sandberg Institute, Piet Zwart Institute, Rietveld Academie, Leiden University, Royal Academy of Art, University of Amsterdam, VRAcademy and Master Institute of Visual Cultures (St. Joost School of Art & Design).
Once all the works have been shown, the Cherry Pickers, a group of students from the academies, will award the best programme, the most urgent work, the most surprising work with a Cherry and also will award a Wild Cherry. The Cherries are designed and printed by artist Tibor Dieters.
