Hidden Figures – September 2014

Tate appeared before the Information Tribunal on 18 September to appeal the ruling that it must remove redactions from its governing body minutes. To mark the occasion, on 6 September, Liberate Tate reinterpreted Kazimir Malevich’s iconic ‘Black Square’ painting, which was on display at the time as part of the Malevich exhibition at Tate Modern.

‘Hidden Figures’ was a reference to Tate’s refusal to disclose information about its controversial sponsorship relationship with BP. In April 2014, the UK’s Information Commissioner ruled that Tate was breaking information law by refusing to remove a series of black squares redacting information about the sponsorship deal in meeting minutes of Tate’s Ethics Committee and Board of Trustees.
