Biography

Phoebe Greenberg

Founder and Director of Phi and DHC/ART Foundation for Contemporary Art

As Founder and Director of Phi and DHC/ART Foundation for Contemporary Art, Phoebe Greenberg has devoted her life to arts and culture. An artist and a businesswoman, she’s passionate about all forms of arts and culture, and how modern audiences consume art in the digital age.

In 2007, she launched DHC/ART Foundation for Contemporary Art, whose mission is to showcase the work of the world’s best contemporary artists, including Marc Quinn, Sophie Calle, Nancy Davenport, Christian Marclay, Ryoji Ikeda, Thomas Demand, Joan Jonas and more.

In 2012, after more than four years of construction, Greenberg opened the doors to a unique multidisciplinary arts centre in Montreal: the Phi Centre. Dedicated to art in all its forms, the highly-intelligent Phi Centre proves the scope of Greenberg’s vision. Through original productions, public programming and the exploration of various genres, Phi fosters unexpected encounters between artists and audiences.

Greenberg also conceived and produced the 2008 short film Next Floor by Denis Villeneuve, (Best Short Film at the Cannes International Critics’ Week). In 2011, she was Associate Producer of Incendies, which took Villeneuve to the Oscars that year. She also produced Hope by Pedro Pires, Kivalina by Ben Addelman, Cochemare by Chris Lavis and Maciek Szczerbowski, and Visitors by Godfrey Reggio.
