IN BED WITH… Ron and George Adams

We curl up with Ron and George Adams, directors of Galerie pompom and beating hearts of Sydney’s emerging art scene, to find out how they’re keeping themselves entertained in isolation.

What you are reading?

GA: I’m reading in pic, Art Collector Issue 72, as we are at the moment working on a new website and hence need info for this, so in issue 72 there are quite a few sections to do with our galleries. One is on MOP Projects evolving into Galerie pompom then there are mentions throughout this issue on some our artists, past and present, also on some past MOP committee members…

I have just finished reading The Inheritance of Rome, A History of Europe from 400 to 1000 by Chris Wickham, and have just started Constantine, Unconquered Emperor, Christian Victor. We both read most Art journals, too.

RA: I am reading The Four Horsmen, Dawkins, Dennett, Harris, Hitchens, The Discussion that Sparked an Atheist Revolution

What you are watching?

GA: We’re watching Travelers and Mars on Netflix, Fake and Fortune on On Demand.

What you are listening to?

RA: we mostly listen to ABC Classic FM and also to FBI.

What else are you doing?

GA: Due to isolation we are doing more walking as it’s just so good to get out when we’re at home more… and am helping [pompom co-director] Samantha [Ferris] more with working on the new pompom website.

RA: I’m working on a preliminary painting for a large-scale work… watch this space!
