London, 21 January 2014, Art Media Agency (AMA).
After a £1.4 million transformation of its building, the Delfina Foundation in London has reopened its doors.
The works, overseen by Studio Octopi and Shahira Fahmy Architects, saw the expansion of the Foundation’s space into an adjacent Edwardian townhouse. The architectural restructure goes hand in hand with a new approach in terms of the Delfina Foundation’s residencies and public programme.
Delfina Studio Trust was founded in 1988 by Delfina Entrecanales, before becoming the Delfina Foundation in 2007. It offers residences to artists from all four corners of the globe, allowing them to experiment and develop their practice.
The Foundation’s current exhibition, “The Politics of Food”, is to take place until 7 April 2014. Bringing together 22 artists, curators and thinkers, the exhibition explores questions of food production, from distribution to consumption, as well as how food is displayed.
