This is the fifth year that Endeavor has made available £150,000 for the Fund, set aside exclusively for the acquisition of works by emerging and leading international artists at Frieze for Tate’s collection. To date more than 120 works by over 80 artists have been acquired, contributing to many displays that have taken place across Tate’s four galleries.

This year the Frieze Tate Fund’s selection panel included two guest curators:
Mark Sealy, Director of Autograph and Principal Fellow Decolonising Photography at University of Arts London and Kaelen Wilson-Goldie, writer and critic and contributing editor for Bidoun

They were joined by Tate curators:
Gregor Muir, Director of Collection, International Art
Polly Staple, Director of Collection, British Art
Clarrie Wallis, Senior Curator of Contemporary British Art
Catherine Wood, Senior Curator, International Art (Performance)
Tamsin Hong, Assistant Curator, Performance International Art
Nathan Ladd, Assistant Curator, Contemporary British Art

Maria Balshaw, Director, Tate said, "It's wonderful to be bringing such a great selection of works into the national collection this year thanks to the Frieze Tate Fund. We are extremely grateful both to Endeavor and to Frieze for making these acquisitions possible and, in turn, for helping to support artists at such a difficult time."
