ARTIST AWAITS JUDGMENT
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.
