Tomas will participate in the first edition of MECA International Art Fair to be held in San Juan, Puerto Rico from June 1 through June 4, 2017 at the Conservatory of Music in the new arts district of Santurce. Green Go Home (Thailand + Vietnam) will be featured at the fair.

MECA (named after the Spanish-language abbreviation for the mercado caribeño, or Caribbean market) is the first art fair in the Caribbean since 2010. It will bring together national and international galleries. Organizers Daniel Báez and Tony Rodríguez “aim to make an impact with bold choices, inviting who they believe to be ‘the most aggressive risk takers’ of the art world right now” (Artnet News).

An iteration of Tomas’s Dark Side of the Moon will be shown at the Wallach Art Gallery at Columbia University in a new triennial of contemporary art, called Uptown. Uptown presents the work of 66 artists who live or maintain studios north of 99th Street in New York City.

“It’s really an important initiative for the gallery, the university, and the broader community,” explains Deborah Cullen, organizer of Uptown and director and chief curator of the Wallach. “It’s a no-brainer, really, to have a format, a regular mechanism for the gallery to work with the broader community . . . Our neighbors, the local community should be our first audience.”

The exhibition will run from June 2 through August 20 at the Wallach gallery’s first major initiative in its new home in Columbia’s Lenfest Center for the Arts on West 129th Street, part of the university’s new Manhattanville campus. Furthermore, the Wallach will be collaborating with 13 other institutions uptown to launch related programming and exhibitions with artists participating in the triennial.
