Join College of Western Idaho’s (CWI) Visiting Artist Series in welcoming artist, writer, and educator, Angel Abreu, for a virtual lecture and Q&A about his art practice and background.
Abreu studied philosophy, art history, and comparative literature at the University of Pennsylvania and New York University and is now a beloved art teacher at Deerfield Academy . Abreu joined Tim Rollins and Kids of Survival (K.O.S.), an artist collaborative based in the South Bronx in 1986, and has been a steadfast member working on all major works, projects, and exhibitions since joining.
Rollins and K.O.S. have exhibited their work, which is based on canonical literature as well as music, in art galleries and museums internationally. Their work resides in over 120 permanent museum collections around the world including the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), the Philadelphia Museum of Art and Tate Modern. Through his collaboration with K.O.S., Abreu was the youngest, at 14, to have a work acquired by and be listed on the artists’ roster of MoMA in New York City.
