UBS and Art

UBS believes that good contemporary art reflects and influences trends in society, and at times might even suggest the future.

We share a passion for contemporary art with many of our clients, and through support of innovative programs we enable our clients and art enthusiasts in general to participate in the dynamic world of contemporary art.

UBS has a rich history of actively supporting cultural and artistic endeavors across the world, with a focus on exploring, translating and collecting activities in the world of contemporary art. The renowned UBS Art Collection, longstanding commitments with art institutions, the UBS Arts Forum and the UBS Planet Art app, offer a comprehensive and varied platform that makes the art world more accessible to global audiences and helps our clients navigate the complex and exciting world of contemporary art.

The Art Market 2017

The Art Basel and UBS Global Art Market Report

UBS and Art Basel co-publish the first Art Basel and UBS Global Art Market Report. 'The Art Market 2017' analyzes today's international art market. Written by renowned cultural economist Dr. Clare McAndrew, Founder of Arts Economics, it covers macro-economic trends within the industry, spanning the dealer and auction markets as well as the online sphere.

"As longstanding patrons of the arts, UBS is pleased to collaborate with Art Basel to publish the definitive research on the global art market. Alongside our own art services offerings, institutional patronage, and well-known art collection, the work of Dr. Clare McAndrew corresponds closely with our ongoing commitment to research and analysis of financial markets and economic data for our clients."
