LONDON.- The Fund, now in its 8th year, enables Tate to acquire works by emerging and leading international artists from London’s Frieze Art Fair. This year the fund is a total of £120,000.

Each year, prominent international curators are invited to work alongside Tate curators, Ann Gallagher, Head of Collections (British Art) and Frances Morris, Head of Collections (International Art) to select works. This year the guest international curator is Professor Daniel Birnbaum, Director Designate of the Moderna Museet, Stockholm. He will be accompanied by Helen Legg, Director of Spike Island, Bristol as Observer.

The Fund is organised by Outset which was founded in 2003 as a philanthropic organisation dedicated to supporting new art. The charity focuses on raising private funding from its supporters and trustees for public museums, galleries and art projects.

Nicholas Serota, Director, Tate said: “We are grateful for 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. This is increasingly important at a time when funding for acquisitions is so limited.”
