Supported by Endeavor, the Frieze Tate Fund enables Tate to purchase works at Frieze London for the national collection. In 2017, four works were acquired from galleries in the Focus, Sex Work and main gallery sections. Andrea Lissoni explains why Hannah Black at Arcadia Missa, Mary Beth Edelson at David Lewis and Dorothy Iannone at Air de Paris and  Lawrence Abu Hamdan at Maureen Paley were stand outs for the jury, which also included Tate curators Clarrie Wallis, Elsa Coustou and Fiontan Moran alongside guests Adriano Pedrosa (Artistic Director, Museu de Arte de São Paulo) and Elena Filipovic (Director, Kunsthalle Basel).
