So enjoyed hosting Zesty Meyer, co-founder and principal at R & Company Gallery at the program Collecting Design: History, Collections, Highlights at the New York School of Interior Design, this morning. In the most fascinating, intriguing, and generous presentation, Zesty illuminated on the gallery’s role in discovering, studying, exhibiting, and promoting mid-century design from Brazil, a territory it pioneered. The leading designers active in Brazil during the postwar decades, Lina Bo Bardi, Oscar Niemeyer, Sergio Rodrigues, Joaquim Tenreiro, Jorge Zalszupin, and Jose Zanine Caldas were at the center of the discussion from which I have learnt so much. Presently, R & Company presents an exhibition “Brazil Modern,” which explores the rich and diverse designs that came out of Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo between the late 1940s and early 1970s; the book on Brazilian design, which the gallery has produced, authored by Aric Chen, curator of design and architecture at the Visual Culture in Hong Kong will be out this spring. I want to thank Zesty and Evan Snyderman for their constant support of the program. All images courtesy R & Company.
