With more artists to be announced!

In the spirit of the artists practice, Instant Karma takes the form of a temporal space activated by audience participation. Inspired by pop culture and the iconic song by John Lennon, the artists were interested in questioning ideas of luck and fate, cause and consequence within the context of a table tennis tournament. As a site of play and exchange, the artists have invited friends and fellow artists to create custom ping pong balls, which can be used for the tournament and can seen on display throughout the installation.

The artists will co-host a live tournament followed by beer pong on the opening night on Thursday 17th October 6 – 9pm. Free.
