Liberate Tate is an art collective that has been exploring the role of creative intervention in social change by making unsanctioned Live Art in Tate gallery spaces since 2010. Their aim, to free art from the oil industry, initially prompted the art museum Tate to end its corporate sponsorship with BP. The collective succeeded by March 2016 when Tate announced that from 2017 it would no longer receive funding from oil giant BP. In this two-hour talk and discussion Liberate Tate will show films, share strategies and processes and talk about how they operated both inside and outside the gallery to shift power and transform perceptions.

The Queens Museum is located at Flushing Meadows Corona Park, New York City Building, Meridian Rd, Queens, NY 11368. www.queensmuseum.org.
