Philippe Riss-Schmidt is an art historian, curator and art advisor from Paris, France. He is also the founder of the HyperPavilion. Philippe also runs the PR Curatorial Office (2016), a curatorial bureau devoted to the organization and exposition of large-scale outdoor and indoor exhibitions. The HyperPavilion was an important part of the 57th Venice Biennale and lasted from the 13th of May until the 30th of October 2017. The pavilion was spread around three massive historic warehouses, located in the northern side of the Arsenale (aka Arsenale Nord) in Venice. Visitors had to undertake a journey into the journey to reach the location, thanks to a Charon-like ferry that carried people back and forth the two banks of the canal.

Philippe is known for his expertise and pioneering curatorial practice in the field of New Media (before blockchain was invented) and has created exhibitions with renowned artists such as Frederik De Wilde.
