The first edition of 1:54 was a gem of an art fair: a wealth of new and exciting works and the time to engage with them among gallerists and artists. The second brings an even broader spread of work and choosing highlights has been at best an arbitrary exercise. Though it’s a useful hook, there is of course not such thing as African art so there is no particular theme to my choices—just a world of wonderful variety. Here are 12 artists whose work I love. There are many more to be found.
