Europe’s leading art fair dedicated to Contemporary African Art will make its New York debut from 15-17 May 2015. The third edition of 1:54 London will be held from 15 to 18 October 2015.

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 is initiated by market developer Touria El Glaoui under the auspice of Art Africa Ltd. Designed by Rashid-Ali / RA Projects, 1:54 NY is held at Pioneer Works, an outstanding industrial building in the vibrant and creative neighbourhood of Brooklyn dedicated to the nurturing and showcasing of art. 1:54 London takes place at Somerset House, a historic building and major cultural arts centre in the heart of London.

1:54 is accompanied by an educational and artistic programme curated by Koyo Kouoh and includes lectures, film screenings and panel debates featuring leading international curators, artists and art experts.
