Special Situations Support

We support museum projects directly or through our established relationships.

Fernando Luis Alvarez, Stamford gallery owner and founder of the Clementina Arts Foundation, right, met with the museum president-director, Jean-Luc Martinez, left, and arts patron Hans Miller.

Struck by the accomplishment of such a young gallery, Candida Gertler (OBE) of Outset International and Sir Nicolas Serota of the Tate Museum called upon Alvarez to assume the mantle of leadership for what was then called the Tate Frieze Acquisition Fund.

 

For over a year, Alvarez worked in creating awareness and get commitments for the fund for this important program that purchases art from the Frieze Art Fair for the Tate’s permanent collection, all while giving opportunities to young and emerging curators and artists to work with the world’s most important museum.

 

Alvarez managed the effort until Frieze Art Fair sold a stake in its company to Ari Emanuel of William Morrison Endeavor (WME), whose foundation now manages the Fund.
