This year the £150,000 made available by the Fund is the highest ever.

Those selecting the works were: guest selectors Mami Kataoka, Chief Curator of Mori Art Museum, Tokyo, and Franklin Sirmans, Chief Curator of Contemporary Art, LACMA joined by Tate curators Ann Gallagher, Head of Collections, British Art; Frances Morris, Head of Collections, International Art; Tanya Barson, Curator, International Art and Clarrie Wallis, Curator, Contemporary British Art.

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: “In its tenth year, Frieze continues to be a fair in which we can all make discoveries of emerging and re-emerging artists. This year, the purchases range from rediscoveries such as Fukushima and Whitten, to an artist showing in the first gallery from Africa to be present at the Fair and a younger British painter. We are delighted to be celebrating the10th anniversary of the Fund and we are grateful to Outset for their continuing and very valuable support.”
