London’s Tate gallery is currently home to The Guerrilla Girls’ Complaints Department. This weekend, the infamous New York-based art collective and Liberate Tate, in association with Platform, issued a challenge for Tate – to go Fossil Funds Free.
“It’s time to get out!” – say the Guerrilla Girls
“In an early poster of ours called The Code of Ethics for Art Museums, one of the commandments was: thou shalt not permit corporations to launder their image by funding exhibitions at major museums, until they cleaneth up their toxic waste dumps and oil slicks. That was back in 1990, so we stated that problem early, and we stand by it.”
