After two years of hiatus, the 1-54 Contemporary African Art Fair will return to an in-person showing in New York. As one of the leading fairs presenting contemporary art from Africa and the African diaspora, 1-54 will be housed at its new location, the Harlem Parish, a historic venue first built in 1897 and recently reopened in 2017.
The fair will bring an international lineup of 25 galleries from across Africa, Europe and the Middle East, with a special emphasis on galleries from New York and Harlem, such as Cierra Britton Gallery, Fridman Gallery, Hannah Traore Gallery and Medium Tings.
