The Farjam Foundation




The Farjam Foundation, founded in 2008 by Dr.Farhad Farjam, fosters a dialogue between East and West through various cultural initiatives.




 The Farjam Collection is one of the world’s foremost privately owned art collections encompassing Islamic, Middle Eastern and Western art. Its vast Islamic section spans the entire history of Islam, comprising a multitude of art forms from manuscripts on science, poetry and mathematics to textiles, metal works, paintings, sculptures, lacquers and fine carpets.

Featuring Islamic and pre-Islamic art, Contemporary Middle-Eastern art and International Modern and Contemporary Art, the Collection embodies the fusion of cultures and traditions between East and West.

The Modern and Contemporary Middle-Eastern section of the Collection includes pivotal works by Farhad Moshiri, Mohammad Ehsaei, Abdul Qader Al Raes and Ahmed Moustafa to name a few. From established to emerging and cutting edge, the artists featured mirror the rich and dynamic Middle-Eastern art scene.

The Modern and Contemporary section of the Collection includes major pieces from the Impressionist, Expressionist, Modern, Pop, Minimal and Conceptual art movements.
