If, as Marcel Duchamp believed, it is the viewers that make the paintings, it is the collectors which give them all their scope, by creating dialogues between them.
The Alain and Candice Fraiberger collection reflects the people who patiently built it up over the last forty years: subtle, pertinent, enlightened. With rare consistency and discernment, this couple of shrewd collectors have brought together a group of museum worthy artworks, from the post-war period to today. Through their travels around the world in search of historical pieces, they have succeeded in assembling a unique collection which mirrors their strongest convictions and the remarkable scope of their knowledge and understanding of modern and contemporary art.
From Wifredo Lam to Jean-Michel Basquiat in passing by Dubuffet, César, Buren or Gilbert & George, the collection traces the history of 20th century art as well as Alain and Candice Fraiberger’s skill at creating dialogues between historical works and contemporary creation.
