UBS and MAG: The Reasons for Our Partnership


UBS has chosen to collaborate with MAG – Modern Art Gallery of Milan through a partnership in favor of art and culture intended for the city of Milan. UBS Next / Art, the project of this partnership, aims to be a platform full of events, which include restoring and enhancing the permanent collection, temporary exhibitions, and a rich cultural line-up open to the public.
 
With this project, UBS aims to shed new light on this splendid Villa with its magnificent culture and art. It also wishes to be among the key players in Italy on the art scene where it operates. In line with its own institutional calling attentive to the best forces in society and culture, UBS has found in art a field where it may act, able to narrate its own identity and forge new frontiers.
 
UBS has always supported and encouraged art in places where it has projects and collaborations of all kinds, with the goal of enhancing not only its own collection – UBS Art Collection, with over 35,000 works from the 1960s to today – but also other important public and private art collections by actively participating in the growth and development of these through specific projects. Thanks to this public art and collection support, a special unique project for Milan has been created, in collaboration with MAG, to rediscover and enhance one of the city’s most fascinating locations.
