Encouraging Young Talent
On behalf of the Art Commission – composed of members of the Executive Board under the chairmanship of Urs Rohner – the Art Unit purchases new works following a concept that both accommodates a broad range of artistic forms while guaranteeing that high standards of quality are maintained.
As part of its commitment to encouraging young talent, Credit Suisse starts acquiring works from artists at an early stage in their career. No attempt is made to draw attention to the collection by making spectacular purchases from established "top shots." The goal, rather, is to accompany and support individual artists over the long term, as their oeuvre evolves.
