    Abstract

    This weekend was an eventful one for the Tate Modern. Late Saturday morning, pursuant to section 7 of the Museums and Galleries Act 1992, art collective Liberate Tate presented the gallery with an unexpected ‘gift to the nation’. That gift was a 1.5 tonne, 16.5 metre wind turbine blade, recovered from a field in Wales, transported, cleaned and lovingly prepared for the Turbine Hall. It was accompanied with a donation letter, officially requesting that the work be considered for the gallery’s permanent collection (a copy of the letter and the artwork’s communiqué is included below).
