Oct 4th – 7th
1-54 London returns for its sixth edition at Somerset House between the 4-7 October 2018.
The fair will welcome leading galleries from countries across Africa, Europe, the Middle East and North America. This edition will be accompanied by a compelling series of Special Projects and FORUM, the fair’s talks programme, curated for the first time by writer Ekow Eshun.
1-54 is the leading international art fair dedicated to contemporary art from Africa and its diaspora with annual editions in London, New York and Marrakech. Drawing reference to the fifty-four countries that constitute the African continent, 1-54 is a sustainable and dynamic platform that is engaged in contemporary dialogue and exchange.
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.
