Directly across from the Cuadro Fine Art Gallery is the Farjam Collection.
The Farjam Collection, one of the most impressive privately owned collections in the world today, showcases a rotating series of exhibitions and educational programs. The gallery is free to the public affording the opportunity to learn more about the works, the artists and the context in which they were created.
The Collection concentrates on Islamic, pre-Islamic, contemporary Middle East and international modern and contemporary art. The Islamic section brings art from throughout the region including treasured Quran manuscripts, illustrated books on science, mathematics and poetry and other objects of art.
The Modern and Contemporary Middle East section contains emerging and cutting edge artists of the Middle East such as Farhad Moshiri, Mohammad Ehsaei, and Abdul Qader. The Modern and Contemporary section features Impressionists, Expressionists, Modern, Pop, Minimal and Conceptual art.
“As Mr. Farjam’s collection grew in scope, he had the impulse to share his artworks with a wider audience. He opened The Farjam Collection@DIFC in order to exhibit carefully curated shows and offer complementary educational programmes that draw on pieces, themes and artists from the collection. Mr. Farjam hopes that this combination of display and education will encourage audiences to exchange ideas about cultural traditions and inspire new artists to pursue their creativity.” Mr. Farjam is Chairman and Owner of Farjam and Founder and Chairman of the Hafiz Foundation," stated Marjan Farjam,
Collection and Exhibitions Coordinator.
Lunchtime guided tours every Wednesday are offered. Please call in advance to make arrangements.
