The Frances Young Tang Teaching Museum and Art Gallery at Skidmore College is organizing a major survey exhibition of the work of Tim Rollins and K.O.S. Tim Rollins and K.O.S.: A History examines the unique collaboration between Rollins, an artist, activist, and educator, and the Kids of Survival (K.O.S.), a group of artists originally made up of Rollins's special education students from Intermediate School 52 in the South Bronx. The exhibition will present over twenty-five years of work collaboratively produced by Rollins and his students from the Bronx and from workshops conducted nationally and internationally. Based on literary texts, musical scores, and other printed matter, these works comprise one of the most celebrated and controversial art projects of the past quarter century.
