Komos Tequila launched in New York and hosted “Realities in Dialogue” a solo exhibition by Costa Rican painter Melissa Ríos with JO-HS Gallery followed by a private tasting dinner at Casa Cipriani.
JO-HS, the gallery, design space, and artist studio residency in Mexico City, has announced its first foray in the US, with a new space in the heart of Tribeca timed to Frieze New York with support by Tequila Komos. JO-HS works primarily with emerging contemporary artists supporting them with the production, exhibition, and distribution of their art. For the inaugural exhibition, JO-HS presented Realities in Dialogue, a solo exhibition of work by Costa-Rican painter Melissa Ríos. The exhibition includes 18 surreal, sensual, and highly techniqued oil paintings that display a mix of body and form.
A private dinner and tequila tasting, organized by Tequila Komos, immediately followed the opening reception in the Jazz Room of Casa Cipriani. Tequila Komos is proud to support emerging contemporary artist Melissa Rios’ first solo exhibition and the upcoming opening of the NYC location of JO-HS, a Mexico City gallery and residency program. By partnering with Elisabeth Johs and Melissa Rios, Komos leans into this distinctive exhibition and global event to bring everyone together, sharing a common passion for art and design.
