Having published over 15 highly regarded and celebrated fair catalogues since its founding in 2013, 1-54 is proud to announce the creation of a new ouvrage which launched at our London edition: The 1-54 Annual Book.
The 1-54 Annual Book is quintessential of all the artists, galleries, programming and knowledge platformed at and presented by 1-54 over a single year. The inaugural 1-54 Annual Book is a substantial endeavour that will include four editions of the fair from 2020 – 2021: 1-54 London 2020; 1-54 Paris 2021; 1-54 New York 2021 and 1-54 London 2021.
Alongside a biography and work for every artist presented (300+) and a profile about every gallery (60+), the book also includes transcriptions of three of the most impactful and memorable panel discussions at 1-54 Forum and unique artist interviews.
The 1-54 Annual Book, is a reflection of a year of challenges where adaptation was the keyword. It is a statement of creativity, innovation, resilience, and a commitment to the broader mission: the fair’s dedication to showcasing contemporary art from Africa and its diasporas. Order your copy here!
