Last week, art activists with Liberate Tate – a group that is part of a growing movement calling on the Tate Modern in the UK to end its sponsorship agreement with BP – staged a “guerilla art intervention” at the museum. According to the group’s press release:
At 5pm, around 50 figures dressed in black entered the gallery each carrying a BP-branded oil paint tube. In a circle they placed the paint tubes on the floor and each stamped on one, spraying out dozens of litres of paint in a huge burst across the floor. The installation art work, ‘Crude’, was then signed ‘Liberate Tate’ and offered to Tate for its collection.
