R & Company is pleased to present AN AFFAIR TO REMEMBER, an exhibition that re-envisions an unfulfilled 2020 fair season and seeks to recapture the optimism, excitement, and communal spirit of the fair experience. AN AFFAIR TO REMEMBER art exhibition aims to bring that back and recreate the synergy between the artist’s work, the viewer, and the fair setting, emphasizing the importance of collectible design today.
For more than two decades, the art gallery R & Company has participated in leading international art and design fairs that provide a platform to exhibit talented modern artists, present groundbreaking design and historical masterworks, reach new audiences and share with a global community of artists, gallerists, collectors, curators, and enthusiasts. Fairs have become essential partners in the development of the design community, helping in its success and advancement.
While the unprecedented events of this year have impeded the physical fair experience, they have highlighted all the more the importance of personal interaction and the element of discovery.
This November, the gallery’s 64 White Street location will be transformed into a world of modern art fairs that brings together three of the gallery’s 2020 fair booths, presented as individual spaces within a singular location. TEFAF, Salon | Art + Design, and Design Miami/ booths will be simultaneously installed, collapsing time and space and showcasing each individual fair’s unique and distinct identity.
In addition, the R & Company Archives will present a selection of maquettes documenting the creation of R & Company’s booths over the last 20 years, as well as images from the fairs, highlighting their integral and celebrated role within the gallery’s history through contemporary design and art furniture.
