About Us

Philadelphia Contemporary is a free-standing platform that endeavors to show forward­-thinking, high-quality contemporary visual and performance art in the city. Philadelphia Contemporary will be a nexus for emerging cultural producers, diverse foundations and supporters as well as dynamic audiences and communities in and beyond the city. Rather than acquiring and maintaining a permanent collection, Philadelphia Contemporary will be a non-collecting, multi-disciplinary, and sustainable art venue for the 21st century.

Through an emphasis on partnerships and collaborations, Philadelphia Contemporary aims to bring innovative contemporary art to Philadelphia’s communities and will mount a program of temporary, rotating exhibitions that emphasize relevant, experimental, and unexpected work from local, national, and international artists.
