Ádám Kokesch graduated in 2003 from the Painting depatment of the University of Fine Arts where he studied in Dóra Maurer’s class. Early on, he extended his practice towards object- and installation-making and organized his works into constellations in space. Actively seeking the opportunities to present his works as well as to position them into challenging contexts, he ventured beyond the white cube, organizing shows and presentations with fellow-artists in non-art spaces, e.g. in an out-of-use market hall. He participated in residencies such as Futura AIR, Triangle Studios, New York (2011), or the AIR Laboratory, Ujazdowski Castle, Warsaw (2007); and in exhibitions at the Kunstgalerie Bonn, at the Bunkier Sztuki, Krakkow, at S.M.A.K. Ghent, and at Gallery Plan B, Berlin. In 2013, he participated in the 13th Istanbul Biennial with a large-scale installation; in 2015, he was featured in the FutureGreats guide by ArtReview.
