Phileas is a philanthropic organisation based in Vienna, Austria, that raises private funding to enable ambitious projects within the field of contemporary art. Our activities have a dual focus: we work with international artists exhibiting in Austria, and with Austrian-based artists exhibiting internationally. We co-produce new works and their presentation in exhibitions and Biennials, and we make possible acquisitions for public collections, publication projects, symposia and educational programming.

The deadline for applications for projects in 2019 is July 20, 2018.
Applications are only accepted from institutions. 
Applicants will be informed of a decision in October 2018.
Please visit our website for the application form.
