Frahm & Frahm

Frahm & Frahm Art exhibitions, projects and collection of Nicolai & Michael Frahm

FRAHM & FRAHM With over 20 years of experience in the international art world brothers Nicolai Frahm and Michael Frahm are leaders in their field - curators, advisors, collectors and patrons of the arts. The brothers founded Frahm & Frahm as a company specialising in producing large-scale institutional exhibitions, creating collaborations with major contemporary artists, and building some of the world’s great private art collections. The brothers grew up in Copenhagen in a family collecting and showcasing art to the public at their family art foundation. Their own collection draws on post-war European abstract art and international contemporary art from the late 1970s to the present, and incorporates emerging, established and blue-chip artists from America, Europe and Asia. The brothers are co-founders of the Dairy Art Centre, founding trustees of Blenheim Art Foundation and principal patrons of the Arken Museum of Modern Art. They have provided expert insight into the art market and major events in the global art calendar for Bloomberg, CNN, Sky News and the Financial Times. NICOLAI FRAHM Nicolai Frahm started as a Contemporary Art Specialist at Christie’s in London in the late 1990s. In 2000 he opened his own firms in London and Basel specialising in building major private international art collections, and quickly established a reputation as a leading collector, advisor and patron of the arts. In 2013, Nicolai opened the Dairy Art Centre in London with collector Frank Cohen, a non-profit private art institution open free of charge to the public with an extensive educational programme. The Dairy has presented major solo exhibitions by John Armleder, Julian Schnabel and Yosh*tomo Nara, as well as showing works from their own collections including Ai Weiwei, Urs Fischer, Takashi Murakami, Sigmar Polke, and Cindy Sherman. Within its first year of inauguration the Dairy was voted one of the best new museums in the world by Artinfo. MICHAEL FRAHM Specialised in Western and Asian contemporary art, Michael Frahm has built important private art collections in Europe and Asia since the early 2000s. In 2014, he became Director of Blenheim Art Foundation, producing and curating a programme of large-scale solo exhibitions of contemporary art at Blenheim Palace in Oxfordshire, England. The foundation opened in October 2014 with a critically-acclaimed retrospective of Ai Weiwei’s work, followed by an extensive, site-specific exhibition by Lawrence Weiner in 2015. The exhibitions drew in nearly 600,000 visitors to Blenheim Palace. In Autumn 2016, Blenheim Palace hosted the UK’s largest show to date of Michelangelo Pistoletto. In 2015, Michael curated Ai Weiwei’s first exhibition in Greece at the Cycladic Museum in Athens produced by Frahm & Frahm, which became the most visited exhibition in the history of the museum.

We are proud to present you Ai Weiwei’s new phenomenal show, his first exhibition in Mexico. The show has made headlines around the world for featuring poignant new work, the Lego portraits of 43 Mexican students reportedly missing in 2014. The show also features a stunning Ming-dynasty-era wooden temple and some of his porcelain works. Unmissable and on view until the 6th of October 2019!
