1-54 London Returns to Somerset House

We are pleased to announce the eighth edition of 1-54 London will take place at Somerset House 8 – 10 October 2020.

This will be a very special edition of the fair, a smaller and more intimate event, with a myriad of great art and discussions.

The scaled-down fair will see 25 international galleries representing a selection of the best contemporary artists from Africa and its diaspora. The fair will once again be accompanied by 1-54 Forum, its extensive programme of talks, curated by Julia Grosse and Yvette Mutumba of C&.

We are delighted to announce the launch of 1-54 Online Powered by Christie’s this October, an innovative online platform that enhances the programme of 1-54 by providing a virtual experience where art lovers from all over the world can see and buy works by some of the best artists from Africa and its diaspora.

We very much hope to see you in London this October.
