Support Our Work

"We are only alive to the degree that we can let ourselves be moved."

- Lewis Hyde, The Gift: Creativity and the Artist in the Modern World

Philadelphia Contemporary was founded on the idea that art shouldn’t be confined to certain spaces, only accessible to some. Our goal is to push this idea further, challenging the very idea of what a museum, a gallery, an art space can be. 

From reimagining artistic practices to building a new space that seeks to expand the reach of art, Philadelphia Contemporary is fluid and dynamic, co-creating #artanywhere.

Founded as a nomadic arts organization in 2016 — we've harnessed the energy of public spaces along with local and international artists and creatives to brings a diverse set of Philadelphians together.  

We got our eye on the future, on being a powerful platform that champions new, unexpected and uncategorizable art forms; and we aim to build a center for contemporary art unlike any other in Philadelphia. We need your help to realize this vision.
