Patrizia Sandretto Re Rebaudengo’s collection of contemporary art includes more than 1,000 pieces. She owns work by John Bock, Damien Hirst, Pawel Althamer, Carsten Höller, Sarah Lucas, Tobias Rehberger, Piotr Uklański, Cerith Wyn Evans, Maurizio Cattelan, Giuseppe Gabellone, Diego Perrone, Paola Pivi, Patrick Tuttofuoco, and others. She is dedicated to working closely with artists and to sharing art with the public. With that mission in mind, she founded Turin’s Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo in 1995, just three years after she started collecting. The foundation is dedicated to supporting artists, promoting the production of contemporary art, and putting on exhibitions. Along with other private museums including that of Budi Tek in China (another collector on the ARTnews Top 200), her Turin museum is part of the Global Private Museum Association, formed in 2015.
