1:54 Kickstarter campaign launched

Please support us in the printing of our Exhibition Catalogues! The printing of this publication offers an unparalleled opportunity to disseminate wider voices and perspectives from the African continent. Visit our Kickstarter page now to discover our exclusive reward packages, follow our progress, and pledge to our campaign. Reward packages range from £15 upwards; and large or small, each contribution makes a difference.

1:54 catalogue contains the work of over 150 African and African diasporan artists, many of whom have never been in print before. It strives to counteract the notion of an ‘African aesthetic’ reflecting that Africa is a continent of multiple regions and art hubs – each with their own infrastructures, politics, socioeconomic conditions, legislation, dialects, and languages.

Today, 1:54 is Europe’s leading art fair dedicated to contemporary African art. Inclusion in our Exhibition Catalogue is of paramount importance to everyone involved. Please help us with this final hurdle – raising the funds to print it!

At 1:54 we are constantly working towards a future where artists from Africa and the African diaspora flourish as important agents in contemporary arenas of knowledge sharing, art and cultural production, the marketplace and global industries. Donate today to support the continued success of 1:54.

Thank you!
