Tim Rollins and K.O.S. are a collaborative group. Rollins is an activist and teacher who began his career as the assistant to conceptual artist Joseph Kosuth. In 1979 he co-founded Group Material in New York and taught students at Intermediate School 52 in the Bronx in the early 1980s. He went on to create the Art & Knowledge Workshop. His highly acclaimed collaboration with the members of K.O.S. (Kids of Survival) takes the form of drawings, sculptural objects, paintings on canvas and paper.
Alongside Tim Rollins, the following members of K.O.S. have been involved in making the work for this exhibition:
Angel Abreu, born in Philadelphia, 1974; Jorge Abreu, born in New York, 1979; Robert Branch, born in New York, 1977 and Rick Savinon, born in New York, 1971.
Tim Rollins and K.O.S. highlight quotes from books, plays, operas and prose that the group are engaging with. Although these texts or musical scores may originate in the past, the selected passages are chosen for their relevance to our current political and social conditions. The title of this exhibition has found its root in the gothic novel Dracula by Bram Stoker – with all of its ominous darkness that relates to our present time.
