This year, £150,000 has been made available for the Fund, supported for the second time by WME | IMG. The Fund enables Tate to acquire works by emerging and leading international artists at the Fair. To date, more than 100 works have been acquired, many of which are currently on show in the inaugural display in the new Tate Modern.
The selection panel includes two guest curators: Adriano Pedrosa (Artistic Director, Museu de Arte de São Paulo) and Elena Filipovic (Director, Kunsthalle Basel) working with Tate Curators Clarrie Wallis, Andrea Lissoni, Elsa Coustou and Fiontan Moran.
Maria Balshaw, Director, Tate said, The Frieze Tate Fund has made an important contribution to the national collection of contemporary art at Tate. We are once again excited to be able to select work from Frieze so that a broad public at Tate can experience new art as it emerges. We are extremely grateful both to WME | IMG and to Frieze for their support.
