    If UR Reading This Its 2 Late: Vol. 1-3, 2020
    $32.00

    Tony Cokes: If UR Reading This It’s 2 Late: Vol. 1–3 is the first monograph of Cokes’s oeuvre. Featuring critical essays by Christoph Cox, Denise Ferreira da Silva, Sohrab Mohebbi, and Kerry Tribe, the publication constructs a visual cartography of the artist's work over thirty years.

     

     

    Tony Cokes's video works are eviscerating critiques and affective art works, bringing together color theory, sound, music, and texts, and quoting a polyphony of voices including Aretha Franklin, Mark Fisher, David Bowie, Public Enemy, and Donald Trump. Combining political and social commentary with cultural theory and a critique of capitalism, Cokes's works viscerally confront the social condition, particularly the prejudices and threats suffered by black subjects. This book is the first monograph on his practice, creating a visual cartography of a body of work that spans twenty years.

     

     

    This book accompanies Cokes's solo exhibition, If UR Reading This It's 2 Late: Vol. 1–3, across three international art institutions: Goldsmiths Centre for Contemporary Art, London; Carpenter Center for the Visual Arts, Harvard University; and ARGOS centre for audiovisual arts, Brussels.
