To date, more than 100 works have been acquired, including works currently on display at Tate Modern and Tate Britain by artists including Lubaina Himid, Olafur Eliasson and Hüseyin Bahri Alptekin.

The selection panel includes two guest curators: Katherine Brinson, Daskalopoulos Curator Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York and Shanay Jhaveri, Assistant Curator of South Asian Art, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York

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 Endeavor and to Frieze for their support.’
