In 2015, Delfina Foundation announced a new partnership with SONGEUN Art and Cultural Foundation for an annual three-month residency at Delfina Foundation for a Korean visual artist from SONGEUN’s network of artists who have previously participated in its programme.

SONGEUN Art and Cultural Foundation was established by the late Mr Sung Yeon Yoo in 1989. It is dedicated to nurturing artistic practice through its annual ArtAward, Summer Sessions programme and exhibitions presented in its new Herzog & de Meuron designed building at Dosan-Daero in Seoul.

In 2016, SangDuck Yoo, who has been the Chairman of SONGEUN since his father’s death in 1999, received the Montblanc Award for Arts Philantropy in 2016 and donated the €15,000 award to Delfina Foundation to support additional residencies.
