On the occasion of his exhibition at Dia Bridgehampton, Tony Cokes and artist Andros Zins-Browne discuss Cokes’s new work and their ongoing collaboration.

On view through May 2024, Cokes’s moving-image installation engages with the material and sonic histories of the site, a firehouse–turned–First Baptist Church of Bridgehampton, now Dia Bridgehampton and the Dan Flavin Art Institute. In August 2023, Zins-Browne presented a day-long performance at Dia Bridgehampton, in dialogue with his remix of Cokes’s commission.

During a discussion moderated by Jordan Carter, Dia curator and co–department head, Cokes and Zins-Browne will reflect on the process of remixing the work on view and the intersections of their respective responses to the site.

Tony Cokes was born in Richmond, Virginia, in 1956. He received a BA from Goddard College, Vermont; an MFA from Virginia Commonwealth University, Richmond; and participated in the Whitney Museum Independent Study Program, New York. Cokes has been the subject of several solo exhibitions, most recently of a major survey in Munich co-organized by the Haus der Kunst and Kunstverein München in 2022. Other recent solo exhibitions took place at the Museum of Contemporary Art of Rome (2021); Memorial Art Gallery, University of Rochester, New York (2021); and De Balie, Amsterdam (2022). Recent group exhibitions include Signals: How Video Transformed the World (2023) at the Museum of Modern Art, New York; the 58th Carnegie International: Is it morning for you yet? (2022–23) at Carnegie Museum of Art, Pittsburgh; and the Whitney Biennial 2022: Quiet as It’s Kept (2022) at the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York. He is a professor in the Department of Modern Culture and Media at Brown University, in Providence, Rhode Island. Cokes lives in Providence.

Andros Zins-Browne, born in New York in 1981, works at the intersection of performance and dance. His work extends choreographic notions into encounters with dancers, nondancers, singers, objects, and texts. Zins-Browne refers to his works made in response to other visual artworks as remixes. His past remixes include The Tony Cokes Remixes, 10th Berlin Biennale (2018); See-Saw by Simone Forti, Museum of Modern Art, New York (2019); and Jérôme Bel, 1995, 2020, KADIST, Paris, in collaboration with e-flux (2020). Since 2016, his solo performance Already Unmade has been presented at the Institute of Contemporary Arts, London; Lafayette Anticipations, Fondation Galeries Lafayette, Paris; Rockbund Art Museum, Shanghai; and Whitney Museum of American Art, New York. He is a contributor to Dance History(s): Imagination as a Form of Study (2023). Zins-Browne lives in New York.
