The Chicago Booth London Global Art Collection

Boris Nzebo, The Knowledge, 2015

The walls of our new London campus are adorned with over 50 works of art that not only enhance the physical environment in which our students, staff and faculty work, but form a collection specifically curated to align with the intellectual mission of the school.

The Chicago Booth Art Collection, London

Chicago Booth is defined by an unparalleled curiosity about the world and willingness to search where others have not to find answers.

The art on display is similarly oriented to enhance that sense of curiosity about the world, and to better understand the ways in which contemporary artists have tackled these issues.

The London collection is called Unapologetically, and features art from both established and emerging artists that addresses questions such as economic and cultural globalization, the role of the media, gender and racial identity, and the role of memory.

We see the art collection as an extension of the innovative approach that Booth and the University of Chicago take to enhancing knowledge and science.
