Tate Blackouts

Will we need to save power during the Olympic Games to avoid the stadium lights going out? Tate Passé seems to think so. Its latest wheeze to bring in punters for the London 2012 Festival is to black out the gallery on Saturday nights and allow up to 500 visitors to prowl round the Surrealist gallery using solar powered torches. They were designed by Scandinavian artist Olafur Eliasson, who calls them Little Sun (2012). They're produced in China using sweated labour. (Is there any other kind of labour there?) As usual, Tate doesn't give a fig about health and safety (CLICK). This piffle replaces Eliasson's £1m Take A Deep Breath, which the Olympic Lottery Distributor wisely rejected (CLICK).
