Alt Fact brings together a collection of works that respond to the idea of alternative facts and the way that they can shape and alter our understanding of politics, gender identity and the world around us at large. The works attempt to unpick the relationship between fact and fiction by highlighting the unreliable nature of the narratives we consume on a daily basis, be that through news media, the songs we listen to or the built environment.

Building upon the unstable foundations of mainstream culture, each work demonstrates a personal reflection on the provenance of its own source material. Ultimately whilst there is seemingly no definitive truth to be obtained from these investigations, the show aims to remind audiences the value of remaining critical as consumers of culture.
