Eva & Franco Mattes: What Has Been Seen and Phil Collins
Facilitated in a spirit of dialogue, guided visits with the Phi Foundation's educators are an opportunity to discover contemporary art. Groups can also book 90-minute guided visits adapted to their needs and interests.
Bâches Bleues Against Harm
This workshop is grounded in the sculptural materiality of blue plastic tarps: provisional, protective, repellent. Through individual and group actions involving these tarps, Bâches Bleues Against Harm examines how we interact with ourselves and the people around us when harm occurs.
In the Traces space, you will find a songbook, a pen, and a stack of small pieces of paper. Choose a song that you would like to perform, write the title on a piece of paper along with your name, and place the paper in the box provided.

The Family Activity Kit is a bag filled with materials and activity suggestions that will enrich the experience of kids at the Phi Foundation. Carefully designed by the Education and Public Engagement team, this tool offers different entry points to the artworks on display. You can borrow them free of charge at the gallery reception.
We invite any group of ten people or more to reserve a guided visit with one of our educators. These visits are designed for groups of all types: primary and secondary schools, colleges and universities, community centres and language schools, as well as the general public. Visits are free and last 1½ hours. Groups that book a guided visit of the exhibition are invited to take part in our art workshops. Unique to each exhibition and developed in collaboration with Montreal-based artists, our workshops complement participants’ gallery experience through hands-on experimentation. A visit combined with a workshop lasts two hours.
Reservations are required for all visits with an educator; please make your reservation with our reservation form. Please note that groups planning a visit without an educator are required to contact us in advance in order for us to advise security prior to arrival.
