How the Kids of Survival Did
- The glass eyes in these sculptures correspond to the actual eyes of the members of K.O.S. Angel's eyes aren't represented in the grouping at the Frye's, but Tim's are.
When I arrived at the Frye last week to interview Tim Rollins and Kids of Survival member Angel Abreu in private, before their public talk, I was warned that Rollins has a lot of energy: "He was literally jumping in the galleries," a museum staffer told me.
It was so true. Rollins is a riled-up spinner of stories (his accent alone is worth the click), and Abreu is calm personified. Interviewing them was a pleasure.
The full recording is up here now.
If you haven't seen the show (and the sensitive attendant show by the kids of ArtCorps), get on it. For a teaser, check out our slideshow.
