1-54 will launch its inaugural edition in Marrakech, Morocco between the 24 – 25 February 2018 at La Mamounia.
1-54 Marrakech 2018 will welcome 17 leading galleries from Africa and around the world, with over 60 international artists and feature an ambitious program of talks and events in partnership with local institutions.
We are thrilled to announce the newest edition of 1-54 in Marrakech. This third edition of 1-54 has been in the works since our first edition in London, and we look forward to continuing to expand and support our network of galleries, artists, collectors and partners with this new fair. It has been an important goal of 1-54 to host an edition on the African continent, and we could not think of a better place than Morocco to host this inaugural edition outside of London and New York. Morocco has one of the continent’s most dynamic art scenes, not to mention the incredibly significant Biennale de Marrakech, which made our decision on where to expand the fair easy for us. – Touria El Glaoui, Founding Director
