1:54 Contemporary African Art Fair is delighted to announce its new edition in Marrakech, Morocco, taking place across 24–25 February 2018.

Held at La Mamounia, one of Morocco’s most esteemed destinations, the 2018 Marrakech edition will welcome leading galleries from Africa and around the world, and be supplemented by a thematic programme of talks and events in partnership with local institutions.

This new venture builds on the global activity and network 1:54 has cultivated through the London and New York fairs for nearly five years, in London since 2013 and in New York since 2015.

1:54 is thrilled to add a third location to its global roster, particularly one at the forefront of transcultural artistry and visual traditions. 1:54 Marrakech 2018 aims to broaden the reach of the fair and further diversify its purview of exhibiting and promoting galleries and artists that are connected to Africa and its global diasporas.
