On 1 August 2012, the Talbot Rice Gallery hosted a seminar, featuring Tim Rollins and K.O.S., in collaboration with Artworks Scotland.  This blog has been set up to feature and capture some of the seminar’s attendees thoughts and observations about the practice of Tim Rollins and K.O.S., and their relevance and pertinence to artists in Scotland.  The blog  features writing from the chair of the day, Johnny Gailey, as well as four attending artists from across art-forms: Alex Hetherington, Dee Isaacs, Sheila MacDougall and Lala Thorpe.

A review of the responses entitled ‘Ten Thoughts’, thinking about what artists and educators might take from Tim Rollins’ practice, has been written by Johnny Gailey.

A suite of videos documenting the seminar are also available.

    • Thanks John – I find procrastination is all part of the process as the ideas come together. Its only in writing do they actually take shape – don’t worry about how it ends up or how it reads, just let it take its own form. Good luck!
