R 20th Century

10 Years in Tribeca

Edited by Zesty Meyers, Evan Snyderman.

Since 2000, R 20th Century Gallery in the Tribeca neighborhood of New York has been host to groundbreaking exhibitions on vintage and contemporary design. Owners Zesty Meyers and Evan Snyderman founded the gallery in order to realize their shared goal of promoting a closer study, appreciation and preservation of twentieth- and twenty-first-century design. The gallery's commitment to preserving history through extensive archives, library and private collection has been widely lauded in the press. Also desiring to represent a more expansive view of the ways in which the design, art and architecture communities intersected, Meyers and Snyderman collaborated on exhibitions with architects such as John Keenen, Annabelle Selldorf, Michael Sheridan, Steven Learner and many others. This book traces many of the gallery's exhibitions over their ten-year history and reveals behind-the-scenes photographs--by Robert Polidori and Jason Schmidt among others--of installations, scale models, architectural drawings, catalogues and ephemera.

FROM THE BOOK
"One day we drove upstate to an auction and spent the entire four-hour drive tossing around possible names while discussing how businesses worked and strategizing about how we would want our business to work. We walked in, saw the giant red neon R (said to have formerly graced the Marquee of a Robert Hall Men's Clothing Store) and didn't even have to communicate--we both knew this should be the name, knew without measuring that it would fit perfectly in the storefront window and decided to buy it no matter how high the bidding went. Luckily for us, the bidding didn't go very high and we drove home with our namesake in the back of the van."

Evan Snyderman, excerpted from his conversation with Zesty Meyers in R 20th Century.
