1-54 Returns to Paris for Second Edition

By Pearl Fontaine

April 4, 2022

The second Parisian edition of the 1-54 Contemporary African Art Fair is taking place within the galleries of esteemed auction house Christie’s from April 7—10. Following the postponement of the fair’s iteration in Marrakech, 1-54 has invited all participants from the Morocco iteration for a total of 22 presenting galleries. Open to the public for the first time, the show has been presented with support from Artsy, encompassing an online aspect to welcome remote participants, which joins the main in-person gallery presentations and programming like 1-54 Forum.

“In lieu of 1-54’s celebrated Marrakech edition, Christie’s Paris is honoured to welcome the 1-54 fair back to our galleries in Avenue Matignon. January 2021 was a real success and an opportunity for Christie’s to offer our collectors the chance to discover contemporary African art,” said Julien Pradels, the General Director of Christie’s France. “The second edition in Paris will allow us to reinforce our support for the participating galleries and the artists they represent. We are delighted that this partnership will continue in 2022, beginning in Paris and continuing in London to coincide with the fair’s 10th edition.”
