Matt Stokes’ practice stems from an inquiry into actions and beliefs that shape people’s lives and identities. Many of his past works have focused on music – its history, subcultures and sociopolitical effects – to provide a catalyst for research and forming collaborative relationships between communities, bringing together their interests, knowledge and skills in conflicting situations. By exploring the resulting exchanges of ideas, projects have evolved into films, installations and events that aim to challenge assumptions about chosen ways of living.
Matt Stokes (b. 1973) lives and works in Newcastle/ Gateshead and is represented by Workplace Gallery and Galerie Markus Lüttgen. Matt Stokes is working in Plymouth as part of We The People (are the work).
