Taiwanese curator Chong Chin-yin to take up residency at Delfina Foundation
In partnership with the London-based Delfina Foundation, the Cultural Division of the Taipei Representative Office in the U.K. and London-based Delfina jointly launched a residency program for the third time for Taiwanese artists and curators to take part in.
This year, the foundation received a total of 56 applications for the residency program and after the jury of art professionals reviewed the submitted documents and conducted online interviews with applicants, Taiwanese artist Chong Chin-yin (張瀞尹) was eventually selected for the six-week residency which will run from Aug. 8 through Sep. 19.
Taipei-born Chong has worked as an independent curator in several exhibitions and she is also the co-founder of Arts Collective (藝類). Chong has worked as the Assistant Curatorial Manager at Hong Kong Arts Centre since 2016 and curated exhibitions including Æthereal (National Taiwan Museum of Art, 2021), MMXX (Art at a Time Like This, 2021), Borrowed Scenery (Cattle Depot, 2019), Flanêur (Tsim Sha Tsui Promenade, 2019), Very Natural Actions (Tai Kwun Contemporary, 2019), among others.
Delfina Foundation is the largest residency in London with the renowned curator and a former juror for the Turner Prize, Aaron Cezar, as the director. In addition to receiving long-term support from the Arts Council England, the foundation also has a long-standing relationship with international art organizations in England and around the globe. Its board consists of local collectors, art critics, and curators who are committed to facilitating artistic exchange.
This year, the residency is opened to curators and the restrictions on creative research themes have also been relaxed, hoping that the residency program will enrich the vision of emerging Taiwanese artists and cultivate their international discourse skills as well as foster mutual understanding.
