BONKERS Contemporary today announced the artists who have been selected for the exhibition Bonkers 2017. The exhibition of work by the selected artists will be held at The Biscuit Factory in Edinburgh from 5 - 8 October 2017.
The artists are:
CELIE BYRNE & JENNIFER MURPHY
Artists were selected from submissions to an Open Call which attracted entries from across Scotland.
BONKERS Contemporary is an artist-led collective initiated in 2016 to create opportunities for emerging, early-career artists.
Three Edinburgh based artists, Freddie Thomas, Abigail Smith, and Clare Robertson, who met while completing a Masters Programme in Contemporary Art Practice at Edinburgh College of Art, organised the first BONKERS exhibition during the Edinburgh Fringe 2016.
Following this success, BONKERS Contemporary is now an annual event, embracing the importance of making, developing ideas and creating a supportive space - physical or mental - for emerging artists.
Bonkers Contemporary founders and curators of the 2017 exhibition are Freddie Thomas and Abigail Smith.
