For the reopening of its physical spaces, PHI becomes a haven for artistic reconnection
PHI is both a starting point and a destination. With two new major exhibitions and ten multidisciplinary initiatives to discover throughout the summer, we invite the public on a multifaceted odyssey. Across the physical and virtual creative spaces of PHI, the journey will be versatile and personal for everyone.
“Art has an impact on how we consider who, where, and what we are in this world. PHI becomes a cultural oasis, giving art a platform to speak about what is relevant today.”
—Phoebe Greenberg, founder and director of PHI
