The Outset / Frieze Art Fair Fund to Benefit the Tate Collection
is a unique partnership between Outset Contemporary Art Fund, Frieze Art Fair and Tate. Since its inception in 2003, 90 works by 60 international artists have been acquired. Each year Tate invites two international curators to select works for the Fund.
The Fund is organised and financed by Outset Contemporary Art Fund and enjoys support from Le Méridien Hotels and Resorts.
The fund enables Tate to buy important work by emerging artists at the fair for the national collection. The donors to Outset all have a particular interest in enabling Tate’s acquisition of emerging contemporary art. Outset is very grateful to all the participants for their generosity.
