1 / David Roberts Art Foundation (DRAF) is an independent, non-profit foundation and a registered charity founded in 2007. DRAF seeks to develop a challenging, international and collaborative programme of exhibitions, productions and live events. DRAF wishes to provoke, engage, experiment, and share.
2 / DRAF is responsible for a collection of more than 1800 works, representing more than 700 international artists. The collection is not focused on a specific medium, generation or geographical area, but is a diverse and independent organism: its focus is on contemporary works but also includes historical positions that are of key relevance to current discourses. We are proud to preserve the history of the collection and the very first works acquired when the collection began in the mid 90s. Many artists are collected in depth, which allows for a close understanding of their practice. Works are mainly acquired directly from galleries and artists.
