Phileas is a philanthropic organisation based in Vienna, Austria, that enables ambitious projects within the field of contemporary art. Its activities focus primarily on international exhibitions by Austrian and Austrian-based artists. 

Phileas co-produces new works and their presentation in museum exhibitions and Biennials, as well as accompanying publications and symposia. Where possible, it goes on to acquire those same works for public collections.

The deadline for applications for project collaborations in 2021 is September 11, 2020. Applications are only accepted from institutions. Applicants will be informed of a decision in November 2020. For further details, please see our application form.

Phileas provides curatorial assistance to museum and Biennial curators, and organises funded research trips to Vienna for curators and critics to visit artists' studios, foundations and museums. Phileas also assists museum trustee and patron groups with planning and organizing trips to Vienna. Please contact Bianca Boscu at bianca@phileasprojects.org for further information.

Phileas was founded by Jasper Sharp and Moritz Stipsicz. Its programme is managed by Stefanie Reisinger and Bianca Boscu, with assistance from Hannah Marynissen.
