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 have since contributed in excess of £500,000 to enable Tate to annually acquire major new works fair by significant international artists. Since 2003 the Fund has enabled acquisitions of works by: Fikret Atay, Olafur Eliasson, Anri Sala and Yutaka Sone Gabriel Kuri, Simon Starling, Catherine Sullivan, Dan Perjovschi, Trisha Donnelly, Philippe Parreno, Bruno Serralongue, Rivane Neuenschwander / Cao Guimaraes, Christopher Williams, Thomas Hirschhorn, Anna Barriball, David Shrigley, 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, Pae White, Stanley Brouwn, Alexandre da Cunha, David Lamelas, Zoe Leonard, Daria Martin, Matthew Monahan, Deimantas Narkevicius and Anri Sala.
Nicholas Serota, Director, Tate said: “Limited public funding for acquisitions makes the purchase of contemporary work increasingly challenging. We are particularly grateful to the continuing support of the Outset/Frieze Art Fair Fund which has enabled Tate to significantly extend its Collection of work by new and emerging artists.
Notes to Editor
Outset Contemporary Art Fund was founded in 2003 by Yana Peel and Candida Gertler as a philanthropic organisation dedicated to supporting new art. The charitable foundation focuses on bringing private funding from its supporters and trustees to public museums, galleries, and art projects. The fund uses its independent platform to give new audiences proximity to the visual arts, building long-lasting relationships within the international artistic community. The donors all have a particular interest in supporting the Tate's acquisition of international contemporary art.
Outset gratefully acknowledges sponsorship for The Outset/Frieze Art Fair Fund to benefit the Tate Collection from Laurent-Perrier.
