Most of the works in the collection were created after 1970 and many have an emphasis on individuality and identity.

Female artists feature prominently, including Louise Bourgeois, Tracey Emin, Jenny Holzer, Sarah Lucas, Cindy Sherman and Kiki Smith. Male artists in the collection include Michael Craig-Martin, Lucian Freud, Antony Gormley, and Alex Katz.
