Art of Influence 2021

Balancing culture and currency in collecting fine art

In December 2021, the Multicultural Investor (MCI) and Athlete and Entertainer (A&E) Client Segments hosted Art of Influence at Art Basel in Miami Beach. It was an insightful conversation on understanding the difference, and striking the right balance between, collecting fine art for passion and for profit. Guests heard from renowned artist Derrick Adams, expert curator Jumaane N’namdi and Global Head of the UBS Art Collection, Mary Rozell as they gathered among an intimate, select audience of art appreciators.

Derrick Adams is a Baltimore-born, Brooklyn, New York-based artist whose critically admired work spans painting, collage, sculpture, performance, video and sound installations.

Jumaane N’Namdi is the Director of N’Namdi Contemporary Miami and N’Namdi Contemporary Chicago.

Mary Rozell is the Global Head of the UBS Art Collection and a recognized expert on art collecting.
