The KAC Links Invitational brings together a group of 12 artists to transform the KAC Gallery into a playable, nine-hole miniature golf course. Working within loosely defined boundaries, the artists respond to notions of accessibility, sport, and the balance between art and entertainment. The exhibition aims to connect a wider audience to contemporary art practices by challenging visitors directly with something partially familiar. By adhering (mostly) to an established format and set of rules, this exhibition already meets even the most distant arts participant half way.
