Tony Cokes

2016 Visiting Fellow

Tony Cokes is a post-conceptualist whose practice foregrounds social critique. He makes video, installation, and other works that reframe appropriated materials to reflect upon capitalism, subjectivity, knowledge and pleasure. Sound always functions in his practice as a crucial, intertextual element, complicating minimal visuals. Cokes' works have appeared in exhibitions at The Museum of Modern Art, NYC, the Whitney Museum of American Art, Centre Georges Pompidou, ZKM, Karlsruhe, REDCAT, Los Angeles, and La Cinémathèque Française, Paris. His projects have been supported by grants and fellowships from The Rockefeller Foundation, John Simon Guggenheim Foundation, Creative Capital Foundation, New York Foundation for the Arts, and residencies from The Getty Research Institute and the Yaddo Colony. Cokes is a Professor in Media Production and former Director of Undergraduate Studies, Department of Modern Culture and Media at Brown University.
