Moved by an enthusiasm for intense colour and bold expressive gestures, Thomas Olbricht has spent the last 30 years collecting abstract art in a wide variety of styles.
At me Collectors Room, he will present a selection of his current favourites, drawn from his collection of 350 abstract works by ninety different artists. At the same time, with the installation of new seating arrangements, Olbricht is transforming the exhibition spaces into a multi-sensory experience. This will allow the exhibition visitor to relax and have a drink while delving more deeply into the artworks on display and the reading materials or music – compiled by music and art publicist Max Dax.
My Abstract World brings together a selection of international artists, from established figures like Bernard Frize, Joseph Marioni and Katharina Grosse to representatives of a younger generation, including Ali Banisadr, Paul Fägerskiöld and David Ostrowski.
