Founded in 2013 by Touria El Glaoui, 1:54 is set to dazzle from the outside in. Together with the gallery exhibits, brightly coloured sculptures will transform Somerset House into an exhibition platform of African multiplicity and diversity.
The fair will again be accompanied by FORUM, its extensive talks and events program which include lectures, film screenings and panel discussions with international curators, artists and art professionals. FORUM is curated by Koyo Kouoh, Artistic Director of RAW Material Company, Dakar.
1:54 will exhibit a cross-section of works including photography, sculpture and painting across Somerset House’s East, West and South Wings. An established and revered voice in African contemporary art, 1:54 is set to be an inspirational cultural platform not to miss this October.
