In recent years, the art fair has not only made a name for itself in the international art hub New York. With Marrakech (since 2018) and London (2013) as other venues, 1-54 offers the year and the world a glimpse of what’s happening in the continent’s contemporary art scene and its diaspora. The 1-54 Contemporary African Art Fair New York is on until 6th May.
