Produced on the occasion of If UR Reading This It’s 2 Late, Vol. 3, the first comprehensive solo exhibition by the American artist Tony Cokes in Belgium. In his work, Cokes brings together image, text and sound. This results in thought-provoking video art centered around questions of truth, social justice, and capitalism.

If UR Reading This It’s 2 Late, Vol. 3 shows Cokes’ works on pop and electronic music. The exhibition is named after a Drake mixtape, which underscores the ‘mixing’ in Cokes’ art. The artist does so by quoting various authors: from Aretha Franklin to Morrissey, from Malcolm X to Louis Althusser.
