Patrizia Sandretto Re Rebaudengo’s collection of contemporary art includes more than 1,500 pieces and focuses on work of the last 25 years. She owns work by Maurizio Cattelan, Ian Cheng, Berlinde de Bruyckere, Cerith Wyn Evans, Damien Hirst, Josh Kline, Sarah Lucas, Lynette Yiadom-Boakye, Mark Manders, Charles Ray, Cindy Sherman, Rudolf Stingel, Rosemarie Trockel, and Adrian Villar Rojas, among many 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. Her Turin museum is part of the Global Private Museum Association, formed in 2015. Since 1980s, she has collected 20th-century American costume jewelry and, since the 1990s, has amassed around 3,000 historic photographs, most of which depict Italy.
