About the Foundation

Established in 2007 by Phoebe Greenberg, the Phi Foundation for Contemporary Art, formerly known as DHC/ART, is a non-profit organization dedicated to the presentation of contemporary art. Housed in two heritage buildings located in the heart of Old Montreal, its programming has met with critical acclaim both at home and around the world. Each year, the Phi Foundation presents two to three major exhibitions, a series of public events, special collaborative projects and a forward-thinking education program.

International in scope while responsive to the Montreal context, the Foundation’s programming is offered free of charge to reinforce its commitment to accessibility, while fostering a discussion on how contemporary art is invested with the topics and ideas that reflect and touch our everyday lives.
