The Starrett-Lehigh Building, renowned for its creative environment, hosts this year’s event, highlighting the commitment to promoting contemporary African art globally. Founded in 2013, 1-54 aims to raise awareness of African modern and contemporary art, fostering market interest and hosting panel events dedicated to the continent’s creative richness.

Since its inaugural fair in London in 2013, 1-54 has been dedicated to broadening the art-historical significance of African modern and contemporary art. The organization has overseen a significant shift in art world awareness and market interest in contemporary African and diasporic art practices. It achieves this through hosting panel events and providing an event calendar dedicated to showcasing the aesthetic richness of creative work emerging from the continent and its diaspora.
