Art and Disobedience

Art col­lect­ive Lib­er­ate Tate presen­ted the Tate Gallery with a ‘gift to the nation’.  That gift was a 1.5 tonne, 16.5 metres wind tur­bine blade, recovered from a field in Wales, trans­por­ted, cleaned and lov­ingly pre­pared for the Tur­bine Hall.  It was accom­pan­ied with an offi­cial applic­a­tion that the work be con­sidered for the gallery’s per­man­ent col­lec­tion. The artwork and performance were done in protest of the Tate’s reliance on petroleum giant, BP.

Via Critical Legal Thinking.
