Tony Cokes makes video, installation, print, sound and other works that reframe appropriated texts to reflect upon capitalism, subjectivity, knowledge and pleasure. Cokes deploys sound as a crucial, intertextual element, complicating minimal visuals. He has shown works internationally at venues including Centre Pompidou, Museum of Modern Art New York, Whitney Museum of American Art, ZKM Karlsruhe, REDCAT and La Cinémathèque Française. Cokes has screened in festivals including the Berlin Biennale X, Rotterdam International Film Festival, Rencontres Internationales Paris/Berlin/Madrid and the Oberhausen Short Film Festival. He is a professor in modern culture and media at Brown University, Providence, RI. His work is represented by Greene Naftali Gallery, New York.
