The collection is sustainable.
Mirabaud’s active commitment to contemporary art goes well beyond its vast collection. In line with the values ââof the Group, a pioneer of sustainable and responsible finance, this approach not only supports today’s artists, but also institutions and events that help bring art to a wider audience. This is why Mirabaud has been a loyal supporter of MAMCO since the creation of the museum, as well as of the District and Night of the Baths, FIAC Outside the walls and the Zurich Art Weekend.

Mirabaud’s commitment is a reflection of the importance of artistic creation in our society, this unique approach that allows us to get out of our comfort zone and invites us to question ourselves or to take a new look at the world. . Creativity is fundamental for any type of innovation, to think differently. Supporting contemporary art also means supporting the world of ideas and the artists who bring them to life brilliantly. For more than 200 years, Mirabaud has been guided by these values, reflecting on the place of the individual in the world and alongside creators.
We want the works of our collection to be accessible to as many people as possible. This is why we have just put the complete catalog of the collection online, a way to open the doors wide to you. We also lend our works to institutions that request them, allowing the public to discover them more closely.
Our commitment also extends to the integration of art into the urban landscape. The dialogue between town planning, architecture and creation helps to animate cities and allows them to rethink urban space.
To this end, we support the FIAC Outside the walls, which presents sculptures and installations every year in various emblematic public places of Paris. On the occasion of our bicentenary in 2019, we donated to Geneva the work entitled Moon, by the Swiss artist from Engadine, Not Vital. The monumental sculpture now adorns the Plainpalais, downtown. We also continue to integrate art into the city, in particular by lighting our facade, which has become a canvas for a work by Swiss artist Emilie Ding, How far you can count, a vibrant tribute to the composer Pauline Oliveros, at the origin of the concept of “Deep Listening”.
Committed to the artistic avant-garde since its founding in 1819, the Mirabaud art collection reflects, through its diversity and scope, a pluralist vision of our common history and of the world today. The collection brings together both emerging artists – including Omar Ba, Antoine Roegiers and Fabien Marti – and established talents like Marina Abramovic, Not Vital, Thomas Ruff and Olafur Eliasson, to name a few. Supporting young designers is essential for our group, almost an act of activism. We support young Swiss and foreign artists, acquiring works and, above all, promoting creativity and innovation in all their forms.
The living collection of Mirabaud constitutes a strong bond which unites us with our customers and collaborators, all invited to share this unique experience. The collection extends to all the premises of the Mirabaud Group.
