• 1:54 Contemporary African Art Fair

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.

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.
