Collectors Carole Server and Oliver Frankel's Picks from Art Basel, LISTE, and Volta 2016
A piece by Dana Schutz at Contemporary Fine Arts, Berlin

The husband and wife collecting team of Carole Server and Oliver Frankel have a penchant for buying works by unsung early- and mid-career artists, which they hang in their Tribeca loft apartment when they’re not lending them to places like the Tate Liverpool or the Whitney Biennial. Naturally, the pair is currently browsing the Basel fairs for potential new purchases—here, in their own words and photos, are the works that caught their practiced eyes.
