Padgett v (1) Sir Nicholas Serota (2) Board of Trustees of Tate Gallery - Proposal by Unitarian artist to build memorial in sugar cubes was not application for employment  EAT
Mr Padgett proposed a "performance" at Tate Modern, based around a reconstruction - in sugar cubes - of the Sir Henry Tate Memorial. He considered this "religious art". The Tate Gallery declined the proposal. Mr Padgett claimed that it had discriminated against him on grounds of religious belief. An employment tribunal concluded that he was neither an employee nor applicant for employment and so it had no jurisdiction to hear the claim. Mr Padgett appealed - and lost.
