Join us for the opening of If UR Reading This It’s 2 Late: Vol.1, an exhibition by Tony Cokes featuring work from 1990 onwards, and including two new commissions.

Afterparty 9pm til late.
Stocks Bar, New Cross Inn, 323 New Cross Rd, SE14 6AS.

Cokes’ video works are eviscerating critiques and affective art works, bringing together colour theory, sound, music, and texts quoting a polyphony of voices such as Louis Althusser, Malcolm X, David Bowie, Public Enemy and Donald Trump. Meeting political and social commentary with cultural theory and a critique of capitalism, Cokes’ films viscerally confront the social condition, as well as the specific prejudices and threats suffered by black subjects. Recent works range across minimal techno, the Bush administration’s use of colour to engender a perpetual culture of fear, and music used to torture detainees during the so-called ‘war on terror’.
