University Collections and Galleries


Corporate art collections enliven the work environment, encourage employee involvement and benefit corporate brands through close association with contemporary art. University of the Arts London offers companies many ways to engage with the creative cultural sector while supporting emerging artists.

The University of the Arts London Art Collection captures the energy of creative practice across many disciplines and supports the work of artists after they have left College. The Collection was started in 1987 when the Colleges that today comprise the University first came together. Today, it consists of more than 600 pieces of work, mainly wall-based, by graduates of the University's six Colleges in a wide variety of mediums, from painting to photography. Pieces are bought from students at their degree shows and from studios and exhibitions after they graduate, giving artists a boost early in their career.

Collection artists include Peter Doig, Mona Hatoum, Toby Ziegler, Mark Titchner, Cornelia Parker, Tom Hunter and Dan Holdsworth.

They are composed of a rich and varied range of materials, some unique or rare, and examples of traditional and contemporary practice. The purpose of the collections is to support teaching, learning and research and therefore cover a wide array of subjects in order to support a variety of disciplines from graphic design to fashion.
