Centre Phi: Call for Submissions

New Annual Residency Program: PHI MONTREAL

Following PHI - NORTH, this new artist residency will allow five local artists to create a contemporary artwork to address concerns of our time.

PHI — MONTREAL Residency an annual 60-day production residency that offers Montreal-based artists the opportunity to respond to a curatorial theme through the creation of a new artwork, to be presented in an exhibition at the PHI Foundation in September 2021.

One cohort of five artists will be selected per year and will work under the support and guidance of PHI curatorial, technical, and production staff. Artists across all disciplines are encouraged to apply, while keeping in mind that the residency’s objective is to produce an artwork—installation, visual, sculptural or media artwork, or otherwise—for exhibition.

Artists are invited to submit a proposal for an art project based on a curatorial prompt. For more details on the curatorial theme, eligibility requirements, selection process and to submit an application, please visit our website.

The selection will be undertaken by a committee composed of PHI staff and invited external professionals who reflect a diverse set of expertise and perspectives as well as represent intersectional diversity.

Daniel Fiset, PHI MONTREAL Curator, PHI Foundation
