In 2019, Delfina Foundation began a partnership with the newly-established Asymmetry Art Foundation, to provide accommodation and mentoring as part of Delfina Foundation’s residency programme for Asymmetry’s Curatorial Fellowships, which provide placements in UK arts institutions for mid-career Asian curators.
Asymmetry is a London-based independent, non-profit initiative dedicated to nurturing curatorial practice and developing cultural knowledge in and about Asia through global exchange.
In 2019 Zian Chen was selected as an Asymmetry Curatorial Fellow and travelled to London in March 2020 for his fellowship. However, due to the escalation of the COVID-19 outbreak in the UK and the implementation of a national lockdown, he returned to Taiwan later that month having been unable to fully take on the position. As his professional schedule conflicts with a rescheduling of the fellowship, all of the partners hope to collaborate with Zian again in the future.
