The collection David H. Brolliet, Genève was founded by David Brolliet in Geneva in the 1980s. It owns – in 2021 – more than 900 works in all media dating from 1960 onward. 

The collection arises from multiple encounters and numerous travels. It has been formed by a sensibility and passion for thought-provoking works that inspire, challenge and interrogate us and the society in which we navigate. In a unique and very personal way, it reflects the diversity and energy of contemporary artistic creation.

Contemporary African art, whose first works were acquired in the late 90s, holds in it a special significance. In recent years, this facet of the collection has been regularly complemented, in line with David Brolliet’s frequent stays on the continent and commitment to cultural projects.

The collection David H. Brolliet, Genève aims to contribute to the support and promotion of artists and creation. It is driven by the wish to share its works with the greatest number of people, to foster the accessibility to art and the exchange of ideas. Works are thus loaned for exhibitions all around the world, which among others has included Centre Pompidou (Paris), Fondation Fernet-Branca (Saint-Louis), Kunsthalle Wien, ADIAF Triennale (Avignon, Grenoble, Nantes, Strasbourg, Tourcoing, Villeurbanne), MAMCO (Genève), SCAD Museum of Art (Savannah – Georgia USA), Yarat Art Center (Baku – Azerbaijan), etc.
