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.
