New Work by Tony Cokes with The Shed

The videos of artist and Brown University professor Tony Cokes critically reposition appropriated pop music samples, re-edited archival footage, and animated text to critique American politics, culture, and mass media. In his second collaboration with The Shed, Cokes presents new sketches of video work that is centered on quotes from a recent article in The Atlantic “This Is Trump’s Fault” by David Frum and others set to a musical background mixed by the artist. Cokes uses music to examine the ways in which power and ideology are distributed when paired with visual materials.
