Farewell to the Aesthetics of Awkwardness


28 May 2018

Shonky has left the building! Curated by Dr John Walter, the group exhibition included Arakawa and Gins, Cosima Von Bonin, Niki de Saint Phalle, Benedict Drew, Justin Favela, Duggie Fields, Louise Fishman, Friedensreich Hundertwasser, Kate Lepper, Andrew Logan, Plastique Fantastique, Jacolby Satterwhite, Tim Spooner and John Walter - we're sad to say goodbye to all the weird and wonderful works. 

We had a look back through Twitter and Instagram to see your posts tagged #Shonky and #helloDCA - and wow, so many fab images to choose from! Here are just a few of the brilliant pictures you took....

We had a visit from Chocolate, a local punk rabbit..
