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 featured artists 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.
