Magic of Persia, in partnership with the Delfina Foundation, offers a 3-month residency in London for Iranian artists. These artists are provided with a career defining opportunity at the Delfina Foundation to develop and share their work with UK based artists, audiences and cultural institutions.
Founded in 2007, the Delfina Foundation is a non-political, charitable organisation that facilitates cross cultural dialogue between the West and the Middle East & North Africa. In partnership with leading cultural institutions, it creates innovative models of artistic exchange and establishes platforms to encourage exploration, conversations and collaborations.
Renowned art Patron, Delfina Entrecanales, established the foundation as the successor to Deflina Studios. Over its 20-year existence, Delfina Studios became Britain’s largest Artists’ Residency space and attained an unparalleled record with more than a dozen turner prize nominees. It had also supported many well-known artists from the Middle East such as Shirazeh Houshiary, Khalil Rabah, Haluk Akakce, Susan Hefuna and Farhad Moshiri. The Delfina Foundation aims to develop the next generation of international artists.
