Q&A With Adrian Palengat of APART, Regarding Scion Presents: Love Will Bring Us Apart Again

February 10, 2008

1) What is the theme or meaning of the show?
it’s simply to show how pop art is constantly being re-interpreted and reworked by artists working in different media around the world

2) How did you select and find the artists involved?
theyve been scooped up by apart over the last 9 years and i picked the ones for this show who were most likely to get there work in a container on time !

3) How did Scion find you and approach you to do a show?
i hosted freddi c and the scrawl collective’s big american grafitti show ‘streetwiseone’ in my london gallery in 2001

4) What’s been the biggest challenge you faced in putting together this show?
it’s still to come – hanging it on the 15th !

5) Is there anything in particular you would like people to take away from this show – what would you like to inspire in those that view the artwork?
the same response that we always seem to get which is: inspiration, joy, laughter and fascination at how these artists think of the things they do and….how, a bit like the harlem globetrotters, they put on such a great spectacle as a team

6) What do you have lined up for the future? What’s next after this show?
im curating a 3 week group show at steve shaw’s beautiful new abbott kinney gallery on the 16th march for 3 weeks, then back to london to curate an enormous notting hill apart retrospective for all our artists to say hello to their old clients, then back to las vegas where im putting on another big group show in mid may downtown, then to zurich for a pakpoom silaphan solo show… and the rest of the year i’ll work out as i go !!
