LONDON.- Tate announced today that Pamela Joyner will succeed Jeanne Donovan Fisher as Chair of the Tate Americas Foundation for a five year term starting on 1 April 2018.

Pamela Joyner, who has been a Trustee of the Tate Americas Foundation since November 2015, is one of the United States’ pre-eminent collectors of abstract work by postwar and contemporary African American artists. Her first involvement with Tate was when she joined the Tate American Foundation’s North American Acquisitions Committee in 2011. She was Co-Chair of the Artists Dinner in 2013 and 2016 which together raised over $3.6 million.

Maria Balshaw, Director Tate, said: ‘We are delighted that Pamela Joyner has agreed to take on a leadership role as Chair of the Tate Americas Foundation. Pamela has been a close friend and supporter of Tate, contributing significantly to our recent Soul of a Nation exhibition and championing the work of African-American artists who are very important to Tate. We also wish to take this opportunity to extend our deepest appreciation to Jeanne Donovan Fisher for leading the organisation so successfully for the past seven years.’

Pamela Joyner said: ‘I am honored to take on the role of Chair for the Tate Americas Foundation and look forward to working with Maria Balshaw and the organisation in helping it to meet its inclusive and globally collaborative vision. As one of the world’s leading art institutions, Tate plays a critical groundbreaking role in casting a spotlight on the contribution of both established and under-represented artists to the evolution of visual art in the 20th and 21st centuries. This frame of reference is also consistent with my personal view of the best and highest purpose of arts institutions. I am excited to continue working with the talented team at Tate that continues to have great impact on how we all view art and culture.’

In addition to Mrs Fisher and Ms. Joyner, the Board of Trustees of Tate Americas Foundation comprises: Paul Britton (New York), Estrellita Brodsky (New York), James Chanos (New York), Glenn Fuhrman (New York), John Studzinski (New York), Marjorie Susman (Chicago), Juan Carlos Verme (Lima, Peru) together with Ex Officio Members Tiqui Atencio Demirdjian (Monaco and Venezuela), Greg Miller (New York), Erica Roberts (Buenos Aires) and Christen Wilson (Dallas).
