This year’s 10th edition of 1-54 New York saw 1-54 expand its dilating imprint upon the city by relocating to Chelsea, in the heart of Manhattan, once again coinciding with Frieze New York. The fair was held at the Starrett-Lehigh Building, 255 11th Avenue, a premier property recognised as a creative campus for influential companies across fashion, entertainment, media, architecture and design.

This year we represented a diverse selection of galleries from Lagos and Lausanne to Miami and London, including eight 1-54 participants making their debut at the fair. The expansion underscored the fair’s commitment to showcasing the richness and diversity of contemporary African art on the global stage.
