Delfina Foundation | Burak Arıkan

SAHA has supported the works of artists, researchers and curators at Delfina Foundation since September 2013. On 7 October – 3 November 2019, Burak Arıkan was invited to the 4-week program with SAHA’s support. During his residency at Delfina, Arıkan has focused on a new project named “Time To Live”, in which artists are invited to a new mode of art-making where artworks live in relation to one another. 

Founded in 2007, Delfina Foundation is an independent, non-profit foundation dedicated to facilitating artistic exchange and developing creative practice through residencies, partnerships and public programming. The institution forges international collaborations to build shared platforms to incubate, to present and to discuss common practices and themes.

SAHA has provided support for the artists, writers and curators Merve Ünsal, Övül Durmuşoğlu, Işıl Eğrikavuk, Onur Gökmen, Didem Pekün, Serkan Taycan, Özge Ersoy and Murat Adash, who were previously invited to the program in London.
