A group of international curators selected the works: Douglas Fogle, Curator of Contemporary Art at the Carnegie Museum of Art, Pittsburgh, Eric Troncy, Director of Le Consortium, Dijon, with Tate curators, Ann Gallagher, Jessica Morgan and Frances Morris.

The works will remain on display for the duration of the Fair and will be presented to the Tate Trustees in November. In 2003, Frieze and Tate collaborated to establish the first acquisitions fund connected to an art fair. The Outset Contemporary Art Fund brought together a group of London collectors who contributed £100,000, which enabled Tate to acquire major works at the fair by four significant international artists: Fikret Atay, Olafur Eliasson, Anri Sala and Yutaka Sone. In 2004 the fund increased to £150,000. Works were acquired by: Pawel Althamer, Martin Boyce, Jeremy Deller & Alan Kane, Jesper Just, Mark Leckey, Scott Myles, Frank Nitsche, Henrik Olesen, Roman Ondák, The Atlas Group/Walid Raad and Pae White. The third Frieze Art Fair Special Acquisitions Fund in 2005 again amounted to a total of £150,000 and acquisitions included works by Stanley Brouwn, Alexandre da Cunha, David Lamelas, Zoe Leonard, Daria Martin, Matthew Monahan, Deimantas Narkevicius and Anri Sala. The Outset Contemporary Art Fund is organised by London collectors and Tate patrons Candida Gertler and Yana Peel. The donors all have a particular interest in supporting the Tate’s acquisition of international contemporary art.

Nicholas Serota, Tate Director, said: ‘Tate’s budget for acquisitions is extremely limited and collecting contemporary art is essential to building Tate’s Collection for the future.  I am very grateful to the members of Outset for their continued enthusiasm and commitment, and to Frieze for facilitating the Fund.’

Outset gratefully acknowledges sponsorship for the Frieze Art Fair Special Acquisitions Fund from Laurent-Perrier and John Jones.
