Tim Rollins and K.O.S.
Studies for ON THE ORIGIN OF SPECIES (after Darwin)

2012

$7,500

About

Made in Ediburgh, Scotland. The image comes from Darwin's original sketch that he called the "Tree of Life" that was his breakthrough thought leading to his theory of evolution. TRKOS reproduced the sketch on a rubber stamp to serve as a template for a complex structure and then went in with watercolor by hand. Tim Rollins, a renowned educator, was an active member in the South Bronx education community since teaching at a public middle school in the early 1980s. In 1984, Rollins launched the Art and Knowledge Workshop in the South Bronx with a group of at-risk students who called themselves K.O.S. (Kids of Survival). Many of the original K.O.S. members are still actively involved in the collaboration today. Modeled on their pedagogy of responding to literary texts through art making, the collective has since gone on to hold workshops in classrooms nationwide and internationally, including Northern Ireland, Edinburgh, London, Milan, Bergamo, Montreal, and Basel.
