Collections Fund at Frieze 2017

Posted on 5/07/2017

We’re delighted to announce that the Contemporary Art Society’s Collections Fund at Frieze London will be purchasing a major work for Towner at the fair.

Following the successful launch of the Fund at Frieze in 2016, Towner has been selected as this year’s beneficiary after a competitive application process open to the Contemporary Art Society’s 70 Museum Members across the UK. We are looking to expand our Collection with work exploring the theme of landscape in a time of political change.

The work acquired will be announced at 3pm on 4 October 2017 in the Reading Room at Frieze London.

The Contemporary Art Society’s Collections Fund was set up in 2012 and is designed to support the acquisition of significant contemporary works for Contemporary Art Society museum members across the UK, drawing together the knowledge and experience of private collectors with that of museum curators.
