Beside the Regents Canal in Bow, a converted warehouse has been the site of some of the most awe-inspiring artworks ever created. What started some 33 years ago in Robin Klassnik's studio has developed into an exemplary model of what a not-for-profit organisation can accomplish on little money but lots of enthusiasm, support and vision. Matt's (named after a dog wouldn't you know) has been transformed over the years by some of contemporary arts most significant artists; Richard Wilson adapted the fabric of the building on more than one occasion and created his slump oil installation 20:50 (1987) and Mike Nelson constructed his seminal work, Coral Reef in 2000. The dynamic exhibition schedule continues for a third decade.
