Liberate Tate


There was a new Liberate Tate action this week. There’s a week of performances streamed live on the Liberate Tate site. Yes, that’s my face. A couple of early reports on ArtInfo and the Guardian. Slightly more discreet and less spectacular than the last action, which deposited a two-ton wind turbine blade in the Tate’s turbine Hall, but it was an interesting experiment in instead moving things out of the museum towards the sites affected by BP’s sponsorship. Even if Tate are simply ignoring BP’s multiple violations of their ethics policy, the brand damage seems to be taking hold even among conservative critics.
