Matt Stokes

Lost in the Rhythm

Lost in the Rhythm is devoted to the practice of artist Matt Stokes whose work is marked by anthropological enquiry and an interest in events or informal movements that bind people together. Music subcultures have been central to the development of his recent projects, which have focused on their ability to shape lifestyle, beliefs, and create collectivity.

This book documents Stokes’ ‘performance based’ investigations into the ephemera of alternative underground music cultures such as the Northern Soul scene and the Rave phenomenon, through which he has created new art works that transform our understanding of such cultures in new ways.
