ARTIST AWAITS JUDG­MENT

The Jewish Chronicle - - NEWS -

A JEWISH per­for­mance artist must wait up to three months to find out if he can pur­sue a claim of re­li­gious dis­crim­i­na­tion against the Tate Gallery. An­thony Pad­gett ac­cused the gallery of dis­crim­i­na­tion af­ter it re­jected his plan to make a model of its founder Sir Henry Tate, the 19th-cen­tury su­gar tycoon, out of su­gar cubes. Last Fri­day, Mr Pad­gett, 38, asked an em­ploy­ment tri­bunal to rule that per­for­mance artists were cov­ered by cur­rent em­ploy­ment laws. The tri­bunal re­served judg­ment and could take three months to rule.
