This is the eighth year that Endeavor has made available £150,000 for the Fund, set aside exclusively for the acquisition of works at Frieze for Tate’s collection. Since the fair launched 20 years ago, more than 160 works by over 100 artists have been acquired. These works have contributed to displays and exhibitions across Tate’s four galleries and beyond. Current examples include works by Mark Leckey, Rene Matić and Veronica Ryan now on display in Tate Britain’s new rehang; Leonor Antunes, Tourmaline, Johanna Unzueta and Jack Whitten on show at Tate Modern; Lorna Simpson and Artur Zmijewski at Tate Liverpool, and Obiora Udechukwu at Tate St Ives.

Maria Balshaw, Director, Tate said:

“As Frieze Art Fair celebrates its 20th year, it is wonderful to look back at the many outstanding works Tate has acquired here since 2003. Those works have since been enjoyed by millions of visitors to Tate’s galleries, and they will be cared for and shared with the public for generations to come. Thanks to Endeavor’s support, I am delighted that we can continue that tradition today by welcoming yet another brilliant selection of works into the collection.”

This year’s Frieze Tate Fund selection panel includes Sofía Hernández Chong Cuy, Director of Kunstinstituut Melly, and Salma Tuqan, Director of Nottingham Contemporary alongside Tate’s Polly Staple (Director of Collection, British Art), Gregor Muir (Director of Collection, International Art), Dominique Heyse-Moore (Senior Curator, Contemporary British Art), Nathan Ladd (Curator, Contemporary British Art), Valentine Umansky (Curator, International Art), Amrita Dhallu (Assistant Curator, International Art) and Amy Emmerson Martin (Assistant Curator, Contemporary British Art).
