In a world of post appropriation, Stollen (All I Want For Christmas) pieces together an homage to the made, the found, the acquired and the stolen.

The exhibition asks us to look at presentation and perception, truth and value through a range of materials and artefacts.  Beginning with a collection of artworks and artefacts acquired by various means, Stollen posits the questions of ownership when images are continuously shared and re-shared, how the self in mainstream media has become a fulcrum for immediacy and whether a desire for permanence and authenticity is tenable in an era of the post-truth.

Featuring: Bambi, Marcus Coates, Michael Dean, Jeremy Deller, Felix Gonzalez-Torres, Bryan Goos, Melissa Gordon, Siobhan Hapaska, Hedwig Houben, Kim Kardashian West, Alberto Korda, Pierre Leguillon, Nastio Mosquito, Angus Sanders-Dunnachie, John Christian Schetky and Martin Parr.
