Doug Fishbone's Leisureland Golf - black text in front of cartoon gold course.

Doug Fishbone’s Leisure Land Golf at QUAD, Derby

  • 1 July — 4 September 2016 *on now

In the summer of 2016 Doug Fishbone will transforms QUAD’s galleries into a playful environment, taking visitors on an amusing and thought-provoking journey as they navigate an artist-designed mini-golf course.

The artists include: Turner Prize nominee, Yinka Shonibare MBE, John Akomfrah OBE, Hetain Patel, Yara El-Sherbini, Ellie Harrison, Candice Jacobs, Lindsay Seers, Eyal Weizman, Reactor and Doug Fishbone himself. The 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. Doug Fishbone’s Leisure Land Golf was originally commissioned by EM15*, a collective of arts organisations from the East Midlands, for the 56th Venice Biennale. www.em15venice.co.uk

Accompanying Doug Fishbone’s Leisure Land Golf will be a presentation of Sunscreen, an online project of 40 digital artworks in the form of downloadable screensavers which visitors to the Sunscreen website are invited to select and install onto their own work stations for free. Conceived by Candice Jacobs, Sunscreen explores the role of the internet in both work and leisure. It considers how our tastes, aspirations and value systems are controlled through consumerism. Each of the 40 Sunscreen artists has a connection to the East Midlands region. http://sun-screen.uk

*EM15, is a collective of arts organisations from the East Midlands comprising of New Art Exchange, QUAD, One Thoresby Street and Beacon Art Project with support from Nottingham Trent University and The University of Nottingham. Leisure Land Golf will be on display at New Art Exchange 2 April – 19 June 2016.
