Drawn from a never before seen cache of personal footage, Matangi/Maya/M.I.A gives us a glimpse into the reality behind her music, from the immigrant experience to the power and pain of the spotlight.

Running from: Fri 21 - Thu 27 Sep.

From inflammatory music videos challenging mass execution or women’s rights in the Middle East, to performing live at the Grammys on her due date, Sri-Lankan born, London-based hip-hop artist M.I.A. is known for her provocative challenges to the assumed norm.

Starting her life in Sri Lanka, where her father founded the armed Tamil resistance, M.I.A. came to London as a 9-year-old refugee fleeing from a violent civil-war. She attended art school at Central Saint Martins but soon found expression in music, where she could pull together samples and references from every corner of her experience and find a voice for human rights.

This captivating portrait that spans decades, MATANGI / MAYA / M.I.A. provides unparalleled, intimate access to the artist in her battles with the music industry and mainstream media as her success and fame explodes, becoming one of the most recognizable, outspoken and provocative voices in music today.
