“In a significant development, the art fair is expanding its physical footprint in Marrakech by inaugurating a second location at DaDa, underscoring its commitment to deepening involvement in the dynamic Marrakech art scene. This expansion comes in recognition of the fair’s phenomenal success”, say the organizers on the event website.

Founded in 2013 by Touria El Glaoui, 1-54 is the first and only international fair dedicated to contemporary African art. With three editions per year—in London, New York and Marrakech—as well as a pop-up fair in Paris, 1-54 is the leading global art fair committed to providing visibility to contemporary art from Africa and its diaspora. Striving to promote a community of diverse perspectives, including evolving interpretations of the diasporic experience, 1-54 features leading international galleries specialising in contemporary African art alongside artists talks, panel discussions and a Special Projects programme. The fair’s name draws reference to the fifty-four countries that constitute the African continent.
