Film and Electronic Arts Program, Center for Curatorial Studies, and Art History and Visual Culture Program Present
Tony Cokes Artist Talk
6:00 pm – 7:00 pm EST/GMT-5
In a series of videotapes and installations produced since the mid-1980s, Tony Cokes engages in cogent investigations of identity and opposition. His works question how race influences the construction of subjectivities (personal, cultural and historical), and how race, gender and class are perceived through what he terms the "representational regimes of image and sound," as perpetuated by Hollywood, the media and popular culture.
Tony Cokes was born in 1956. He received a BA from Goddard College, Vermont, participated in the Whitney Museum Independent Study Program, and gained an MFA from Virginia Commonwealth University, Richmond. He has received grants and fellowships from the Rockefeller Foundation, the Guggenheim Foundation, the National Endowment for the Arts, the New York State Council for the Arts, the New York Foundation for the Arts, and the Getty Research Institute. Cokes's video and multimedia installation works have been included in exhibitions at The Museum of Modern Art, the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Guggenheim Museum Soho, The New Museum of Contemporary Art in New York, the Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston, Documenta X, Kassel, Germany, and the Institute of Contemporary Art, Philadelphia. Recent solo exhibitions and screenings have taken place at REDCAT, Los Angeles, the Gene Siskel Film Center at the University of Chicago, and Greene Naftali Gallery, New York. Cokes is Professor of Modern Culture and Media at Brown University. He lives in Providence, Rhode Island.
