Over the years, she has built a vast contemporary art collection, which includes photography, sculpture, drawings, and paintings.

Her rich photography collection was previously exhibited on two separate occasions: at the Centre National de la Photographie, Paris, in 2000, and at the Pavillon des Arts, Nogent sur Marne, outside Paris, in 2002. In October 2008, the prestigious photography museum C/O Berlin, in Berlin, Germany, hosted an exhibition of photographs from the collection to coincide with the release of the JRP/Ringier art publication Collection agnès b. Items from her collection are regularly loaned to museums and art institutions for exhibitions worldwide.
