A reference to fifty-four countries that constitute the African continent, the title of 1:54 establishes the parameters of the fair's ethos: as a platform that strives to represent multiplicity and showcase the diversity of contemporary African art and cultural production on an international stage.

1:54 is initiated by market developer Touria El Glaoui. 1:54 London takes place at Somerset House, a historic building and major cultural arts centre in the heart of London.

1:54 is accompanied by an educational and artistic programme curated by Koyo Kouoh and includes lectures, film screenings and panel debates featuring leading international curators, artists and art experts.

Foundator : Touria El Glaoui.
