1:54, the leading international art fair dedicated to Contemporary African Art returns to London for its fourth edition, from the 6-9th of October 2016.

MAGNIN-A Gallery, in collaboration with 1:54 and Somerset House, present "Malick Sidibé: The Eye of Modern Mali" (6 October-15 January 2017), the first major solo show in the UK of the late Malian photographer. The exhibition will present 45 original prints from the 1960s and 1970s around three central themes. Widely celebrated, Sidibé was the first photographer and first African artist, to receive a Golden Lion at the Venice Biennale in 2007. Curators : André Magnin & Philippe Boutté.


With biannual editions in London and New York, 1:54 is the leading international art fair dedicated to contemporary art from Africa and its diaspora. Drawing reference to the fifty-four countries that constitute the African continent, 1:54 is a sustainable and dynamic platform that is engaged in contemporary dialogue and exchange.

Initiated by Touria El Glaoui in 2013, October 2016 will mark its fourth consecutive edition at Somerset House, having returned from its second New York edition in May 2016.

1:54 London 2016 will showcase about 40 exhibitors, presenting over 150 African and African diasporan artists across the East, South and West Wings of Somerset House. 1:54 London 2016 will be accompanied by an educational and artistic programme, FORUM, curated by Koyo Kouoh and will include lectures, film screenings and panel discussions with international curators, artists and art professionals.
