From May 4–6, 2018, 1-54 Contemporary African Art Fair will take place in New York, in its fourth iteration at Pioneer Works in Brooklyn. Committed to showcasing diverse African perspectives, 1-54’s program offers contemporary artists an opportunity to develop their work on a global scale. The 2018 selection includes 21 galleries from the United Kingdom, South Africa, Ghana, Tunisia, France, Nigeria, and Côte d’Ivoire and supports more than 60 international individual artists hailing from Senegal, Ethiopia, Gabon, Russia, and the United States, among other areas.

This year’s fair presents artists engaged in the African arts scene and its diaspora, with a roster including world renowned artists as Derrick Adams and Yinka Shonibare MBE, as well as relative newcomers, such as Kudzanai Violet Hwami and Lebohang Kganye. The unique program also features the fair’s talks program FORUM, curated by Omar Berrada, and the return of Special Projects at Pioneer Works, a series of educational programs, arts residencies, and installations, as well as parallel exhibitions that foster interdisciplinary connection, community, and activism.
