Doug Fishbone’s Leisure Land Golf

“Doug Fishbone’s Leisure Land Golf is not just fun, it’s a critique of the leisure industry. A bit like Banksy’s Dismaland, but with shorter queues.” Jonathan Jones, The Guardian

Artists:  Yinka Shonibare MBE, John Akomfrah OBE, Hetain Patel, Yara El-Sherbini, Ellie Harrison, Candice Jacobs, Lindsay Seers, Eyal Weizman, Reactor, Doug Fishbone.

This summer Doug Fishbone transforms QUAD Gallery into a playful environment, taking visitors on an amusing and thought-provoking journey with an artist-designed mini-golf course. The Gallery installation uses the fun and accessible game of mini-golf as a powerful tool for questioning the leisure industry and society’s compulsion for consumption whilst also addressing other important cultural topics from migration to global warming and globalisation.

The artwork was commissioned for the 56th Venice Biennale by EM15, a collective of arts organisations from the East Midlands, including QUAD, New Art Exchange, One Thoresby Street and Beacon Art Project with support from Nottingham Trent University and The University of Nottingham. More information can be seen: 

Cost: FREE to visit, £2 to play per person  £1.50 concessions £5 for a Family Ticket. The course is available to hire. Please enquire at QUAD reception for details
