LONDON.- This is the sixth 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. Recently acquired works by Larry Achiampong, Helen Cammock and Claudette Johnson can currently be seen in Tate Britain’s newly rehung contemporary art displays, which opened this week.

For the first time, this year’s Frieze Tate Fund selection panel includes an artist, Grada Kilomba, whose own work was acquired through the fund in 2020. She joins guest curator Hammad Nasar, alongside Tate’s Polly Staple (Director of Collection, British Art), Gregor Muir (Director of Collection, International Art), Clarrie Wallis (Senior Curator of Contemporary British Art), Catherine Wood (Senior Curator, International Art, Performance), Tamsin Hong (Assistant Curator, International Art, Performance) and Nathan Ladd (Assistant Curator, Contemporary British Art).

Maria Balshaw, Director, Tate said: “The Frieze Tate Fund enables us to strengthen the national collection each year with some of the very best contemporary art, and this year is no exception. I am very grateful to Endeavor and to Frieze for their ongoing support, and to all the outstanding artists whose works have been selected.”

Ari Emanuel, CEO, Endeavor said: “We are proud to once again support the Tate’s acquisition of these extraordinary works for their collection, ensuring access to the most exciting contemporary art for all.”

The following works have been brought into the Tate collection thanks to the Frieze Tate Fund 2021 supported by Endeavor:

*Tate has agreed with the artist, Edgar Calel, to become the custodian of Ru k’ ox k’ob’el jun ojer etemab’el, (The Echo of an Ancient Form of Knowledge), 2021.
