1:54 Contemporary African Art Fair 2016

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.


1:54 was initiated by Touria El Glaoui in 2013 in London. May 2016 marks the second edition of 1:54 New York, while 1:54 London will return for the fourth consecutive year from the 5-9th of October 2016 at Somerset House.


1:54 New York 2016 will showcase 17 exhibitors, presenting over 60 African and African diasporan artists at Pioneer Works, an outstanding industrial building in the vibrant and creative neighbourhood of Brooklyn dedicated to the nurturing and showcasing of art.
