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 organisation dedicated 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.  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 Prizes. DF is proud to build on this history. 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 in the Financial Times, the Independent, New York Times, Art Review, Frieze, Art Asia Pacific, Artforum and the The Art Newspaper.
