On Wednesday 1 August 2012, Tim Rollins and K.O.S. led a one-day seminar for artists and educators who work in participatory settings at the Talbot Rice, to coincide with the exhibition The Black Spot. The seminar was open to artists from all art forms. The hosts were particularly interested in considering how the artists’ methodology could apply across disciplines and in other settings.
Including an exclusive tour of key works from Talbot Rice’s exhibition, Rollins and K.O.S. introduced their practice from its roots in the South Bronx to recent projects and artworks including ‘The Black Spot (after Robert Louis Stevenson)’ and ‘On the Origin of the Species (after Charles Darwin)’, new works completed on site with young people from across the Lothian Region.
As part of the seminar project, Talbot Rice Gallery and ArtWorks Scotland collaborated to produce a suite of short films featuring exclusive interviews, Q+A sessions and a keynote lecture.
