Feb 21st – 24th
1-54 returns to La Mamounia between the 23 – 24 February 2019, with VIP Previews on the 21 – 22 February 2019.
For its second Marrakech edition, 1-54 will present 18 international galleries and the work of over 65 established and emerging artists. Once again the fair will be accompanied by a wider programme of events in partnership with local institutions across the city, including Museum of African Contemporary Art Al Maaden (MACAAL), Musée Yves Saint Laurent Marrakech, Montresso Art Foundation*, Comptoir des Mines Galerie, LE 18 and Foundation Farid Belkahia among others. In parallel to the fair, 1-54 FORUM also returns to La Mamounia with daily talks and screenings curated by art historian and curator Karima Boudou.
A reference to fifty-four countries that constitute the African continent, the title of 1-54 establishes the parameters of the fair’s ethos: as a platform that strives to represent multiplicity and showcase the diversity of contemporary African art and cultural production on an international stage.
