Matt Stokes

Matt Stokes has lived, studied and worked in the Northeast since 1993. His practice stems from an ongoing inquiry into phenomena that provide a sense of collectivity, shaping and influencing people’s lives and identities. His works are often made by immersing himself in settings through which collaborations with informal communities arise, resulting in films, installations and events.

Recent solo exhibitions include Grundy Gallery (Blackpool, 2014), Whitechapel Gallery (London, 2012), CAAC (Seville, Spain, 2011), De Hallen (Haarlem, Netherlands, 2011), Kunsthalle Fridericianum (Kassel, Germany, 2010), BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art (Gateshead, 2009), Arthouse (Austin, USA, 2009) and Zabludowicz Collection (London, 2009), with forthcoming solo exhibitions at Site Gallery and Sensoria (Sheffield, 2014) and Matt’s Gallery (London, 2015).

He was the winner of the Becks Futures Prize in 2006 and more recently was shortlisted for the Jarman Award 2012.
