Presenting individual masterpieces from the last half century, as well as letters and ephemera from several artists throughout the decades, the show will provide an insightful look into the Founder’s lifelong friendships with artists.

The Jean-Paul Najar Foundation for Contemporary Art is a non-profit private museum, gathering European and American abstract art from the 1960s through today. By making its home in Dubai, the JEAN-PAUL NAJAR FOUNDATION is honoured to connect this seminal period of contemporary art history to the extraordinary energy of such a burgeoning international art destination. The Foundation has three main goals: to present its permanent collection, to support its artists and to engage collectors. In so doing, the Foundation is committed to educational programs, ongoing acquisitions, guided tours and “Friends of the Foundation” events. The Foundation’s dedicated space in Dubai is designed by Mario Jossa, of Marcel Breuer and Associates, and is presented in partnership with Alserkal Avenue.
