A new international contemporary art fair is in the planning stage, slated to take place on June 1-4, 2017, at the Conservatory of Music of Puerto Rico. This new cultural project, called MECA (MErcadoCAribeño), is being organized by Tony Rodríguez, a visual artist, graphic designer, and founder/director of the 20/20 alternative space along and Emil Medina, founder of the advertising agency Buena Vibra Group, in collaboration with cultural managers Mariangel González and Danny Báez.
MECA will be a smaller art fair than usual, with the participation of approximately 40 new and local galleries. This art fair will distinguish itself as an intimate, boutique-style fair that aims to add to the Santurce sector as a Cultural District and to promote the island as a MECA of Caribbean art, as foreign and international publications have pointed out in the last few years.
