This is the seventh 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. To date more than 150 works by over 90 artists have been acquired, contributing to displays and exhibitions across Tate’s four galleries. These include recently acquired works by Larry Achiampong and Claudette Johnson now on display at Tate Britain and a video by Buhlebezwe Siwani currently showing in the Tanks at Tate Modern.

This year’s Frieze Tate Fund selection panel includes artist Carolyn Lazard and curator Habda Rashid, 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), Valentine Umansky (Curator, International Art), Nathan Ladd (Assistant Curator, Contemporary British Art) and Tamsin Hong (Assistant Curator, International Art).

Maria Balshaw, Director, Tate said:

“Each year the Frieze Tate Fund helps us bring great works of contemporary art into the national collection – as demonstrated by this year’s fantastic selection. Thanks to the ongoing support of Endeavor and Frieze, we can ensure these works are available to the public for generations to come.”
