Yinka Shonibare's Football Cloud, 2015 at Leisure Land Golf, York Art Gallery 2017

Doug Fishbone’s Leisure Land Golf is a touring exhibition by New Art Exchange (NAE), Nottingham. The Exhibition was originally commissioned by EM15, a collective of arts organisations from the East Midlands, for the #56 Venice Biennale. Loaned with kind permission by the artist and New Art Exchange, Nottingham.

Fully playable, this crazy golf course features themed holes each designed by a different world-renowned artist, including John Akomfrah, Doug Fishbone, Ellie Harrison, Yinka Shonibare, Hetain Patel, Reactor and Eyal and Ines Weizman. The game offers an accessible and interactive way of engaging with contemporary art evoking political, social and economic concerns around the theme of leisure.
