1:54 Contemporary African Art Fair will return to New York from May 5-7, 2017 at Brooklyn’s Pioneer Works in Redhook for the third consecutive year.

1:54 New York 2017 welcomes 19 galleries – including 9 new galleries – from Angola, Cote d’Ivoire, France, Ghana, Italy, Kenya, Morocco, UK, US and South Africa, showcasing the work of more than 60 artists including the likes of internationally renowned figures such as Ibrahim El-Salahi, William Kentridge, Malick Sidibé, Billie Zangewa, as well as promising emerging talents such as Derrick Adams, Cheikh Ndiaye, Serge Attukwei Clottey, Boris Nzebo, Lebohang Kganye, and Mohau Mokadiseng, to name a few.

“Both our New York and London editions of the fair in 2016 were overwhelmingly successful, and we could not be more excited to be returning to Pioneer Works for a third US edition,” notes Founding Director Touria El Glaoui. “We look forward to sharing more information about artists and galleries participating in the 2017 edition early next year.”

1:54 New York 2017 will be accompanied by the third edition of the fair’s highly anticipated FORUM program of talks and events, which includes artists talks, keynote lectures, and panel discussions with a host of international curators, artists, and art professionals. Curated by Koyo Kouoh, Artistic Director of RAW Material Company, Dakar, the full program of this year’s FORUM will be announced in March. 1:54 New York 2017 will also introduce an expanded program of collateral events and special projects through its 1:54  non-profit section at Pioneer Works, further details of which will be revealed closed to the fair’s opening in May.
