Jake and Dinos Chapman may seem like brutes, but they talk like academics -- at least Jake did, when he took part in an interview at the 92nd Street Y last week. His interrogator was none other than Sir Norman Rosenthal, former exhibitions secretary at the Royal Academy and the curator of the infamous 1997 exhibition “Sensation.” Seated on stools at the front of the 92Y’s modest Weill Art Gallery, the two cut a strange figure: Jake, at a solid 6'4", seemed a mischievous giant next to the refined Sir Norman, stout and scholarly in a suit and tie.
