About the UBS Art Collection

UBS has been collecting contemporary art since the 1960s, a practice driven by the company's long-held belief that the art of today encourages the innovative thinking that has shaped UBS's corporate culture.

The UBS Art Collection consists of more than 30,000 works, including paintings, works on paper, photography, sculpture, video and installations by artists from around the world and is widely recognized as one of the most important corporate art collections. The Collection is comprised of various individual art collections with unique attributes that have been integrated over time through a series of mergers and acquisitions – notably Union Bank of Switzerland, Swiss Bank Corporation and PaineWebber Inc.

The artworks are displayed in UBS offices globally and in the UBS Art Gallery in New York, serving as an inspiration for employees and a platform for dialogue with clients and the public. UBS takes a dynamic approach to the Collection, continuing to acquire and commission artworks internationally, supporting the communities in the regions where UBS operates. UBS also actively lends works to major art museums and cultural institutions for public exhibitions.

Mary Rozell is the Global Head of the UBS Art Collection. She is the author of The Art Collector’s Handbook: The Definitive Guide to Acquiring and Owning Art (Lund Humphries, 2020), considered the “Bible” of art collecting, and has been an advisor to collectors, artists, and estates on strategic and legal issues relating to the acquisition, management, and deaccessioning of private art collections.
