UBS and Art

Art has the power to provide insight into our complex and unpredictable world. It has the ability to bring people together, to open conversations, question the status quo, and ultimately to celebrate what makes us human.

UBS has collected contemporary art for over 60 years. It is part of our DNA.

The Art Basel and UBS Global Art Market Report 2018
 

UBS and Art Basel co-publish the Art Basel and UBS Global Art Market Report, authored by renowned cultural economist Dr Clare McAndrew, and integrating strands of research from UBS and its Chief Investment Office. A comprehensive and macro-level analysis of today's international art market, the report covers key trends in the market in the context of wider economic shifts.

"The performance of today's growing and globalized art market is a fascinating reflection of wider economic trends and highly correlated with GDP and HNW populations. Collecting is a passion that we share with many of our clients. This collaboration is a natural fit for our ongoing commitment to the research and analysis of economic data for our clients."

It is the eighth exhibition of a multiyear program to support contemporary art and education.

The artists from this region are at the center of sweeping global change and address some of today's most critical issues.
