It is the fourth year that Endeavor has made available £150,000 for the Fund. The Fund enables Tate to acquire works by emerging and leading international artists at the Fair. To date more than 120 works by over 80 artists have been acquired, many of which can be found on display across Tate’s four galleries by artists including Anna Barriball, Marwan Rechmaoui, Lorna Simpson and Jack Whitten.

The selection panel includes two guest curators: Eugene Tan, Director of the National Gallery of Singapore and Singapore Art Museum and Erin Christovale, Associate Curator of the Hammer Museum in Los Angeles.

Maria Balshaw, Director, Tate said: “The Frieze Tate Fund has made an important contribution to the national collection of modern and contemporary art at Tate. We are once again excited to be able to select work from Frieze so that a broad public at Tate can experience new art as it emerges. We are extremely grateful both to Endeavor and to Frieze for their support.”
