Asher Edelman began collecting in the early 1960’s and by the mid 1980’s, he had accumulated one of the preeminent and visionary contemporary art collections of its time. A close friend of Léo Castelli and Ileana Sonnabend, he set trends and many of the artists he collected early on would become the biggest icons in the art world, such as Jasper Johns, Brice Marden, Cy Twombly, Roy Lichtenstein, Andy Warhol, Jean-Michel Basquiat, John Chamberlain, Lucio Fontana, and Keith Haring, to mention a few.
In 1991, he opened FAE, Musée d’Art Contemporain in Lausanne, which presented the first European retrospectives of seminal contemporary American artists, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Roy Lichtenstein, Robert Mapplethorpe and Peter Halley. "Picasso Contemporain," an exhibition of the artist's post war work is still considered an unparalleled exploration of Picasso as a transmitter, interpreter and prophet of the ideas and techniques of Post War art. The trailblazing group exhibition, "Post Human," co-curated by Chantal Prod’Hom and Jeffrey Deitch at FAE, helped define a new figurative movement and vision in art with artists such as Paul McCarthy, Matthew Barney, Mike Kelley, Cindy Sherman, Jeff Koons and many more.
