1:54 is a platform for galleries, artists, curators, art centres and museums involved in African and Africa related projects and aims to promote art by established and emerging talents amongst an international audience.

1:54 is initiated by market developer Touria El Glaoui under the auspice of Art Africa Ltd. Designed by Rashid-Ali / RA Projects, 1:54 will be held at Somerset House, a historic building and major cultural arts centre in the heart of London.

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

It was absolutely brilliant last year so I am sure it will be even better this year.
