The show goes on for 1-54 Contemporary African Art Fair, which debuted in London in 2013 as the first major international art fair dedicated to contemporary art from Africa and its diaspora.
It now shows regularly in New York and Marrakech. The latter, which launched in 2018, has been postponed for 2021. Instead, 1-54 has expanded to the French capital, opening yesterday until Jan. 23 at Christie’s Paris on Avenue Matignon.
It is also hosting an online showcasing of 20 international galleries from Africa and its diaspora on the auction house’s website, where the fair will have access to Christie’s 300,000 online subscribers.
