The exhibition will feature work by approx 15 artists.

Similarly, if your work is smaller in scale, digital projection, or performance we will welcome your proposal. Collaborative partnerships will be also considered.
Bonkers Contemporary asks artists to consider post-truth society and social-political influences. This can be interpreted in any way imaginable.
