In February 2018, the fair was successfully launched in Marrakech, allowing 1-54 to broaden its reach and further diversify its portfolio of exhibiting and promoting gallerists as well as artists who are connected to Africa. Home to one of the continent’s most dynamic arts scenes, Marrakech provided the perfect setting for the fair, building on the city’s creative energy fostered by artists, galleries, and institutions.
