ABOUT DELFINA FOUNDATION

Delfina Foundation (DF) is more than London’s largest international residency programme – it is a home where the next generation of contemporary artists, curators and thinkers are supported and nurtured.

Based in two newly renovated Edwardian houses near Buckingham Palace, DF is an independent, non-profit organisationdedicated to fostering artistic talent and facilitating exchange through residencies and public programmes ranging from workshops to exhibitions, both in the UK and with international partners. A recent photo tour of our new space was published online in Wallpaper* (please click the link to visit their site).


Established by arts philanthropist Delfina Entrecanales CBE, DF is the successor to Delfina Studio Trust. From 1988 to 2006, Delfina Studio held an unprecedented record for supporting artists through residencies and exhibitions, including more than a dozen Turner Prize nominees such as Mark Wallinger, Jane & Louise Wilson, Tacita Dean, Martin Creed and Glenn Brown as well as renowned artists such as Chantal Joffe, Michael Raedecker, Hangue Yang, EsraErsen,WimDelvoye and Khalil Rabah.


DF is proud to build on this history. Working internationallyDF has hosted artists from 18 different countries over the last six years with a soft focus on practitioners from the greater Middle East and increasingly South Asia. We have commissioned new artworks and programmes, often in partnership with leading institutions including Tate, Victoria & Albert Museum, Serpentine Gallery and Frieze Art Fair in the UK, as well international organisations such as MACBA in Barcelona, Videobrasil in São Paulo, Art School Palestine in Ramallah and Art Dubai - to name a few.


Our work is followed by key arts professionals and our audiences include arts patrons, curators, major art collectors and the general public. Over the last year, DF’s work has been featured inthe Financial Times,The Independent, New York Times, Art Review, Frieze, ArtAsiaPacific, Artforum and The Art Newspaper.
