1-54 is the first leading international art fair dedicated to contemporary art from Africa and its diaspora with annual editions in London, New York and Marrakech. Nando’s, in partnership with Spier Arts Trust, is a Silver Sponsor of the London event and once again helped to fire up the 2019 edition in early October this year.
The name 1-54 refers to the bringing together of art from the 54 countries that make up the African continent. Founded by Touria El Glaoui in 2013, it is a sustainable and dynamic platform that is engaged in contemporary dialogue and exchange.
In 2019, the London edition of the fair expanded, welcoming 45 carefully-selected international galleries, showcasing the works of 140 multidisciplinary artists of established and emerging profile. More than 18,000 visitors attended the fair.
Nando’s and Spier Arts Trust exhibited as a 1-54 special project, presenting work by four Southern African artists: Nelsa Guambe, Sepideh Mehraban, Qaqambile Bead Studio and Mxolisi Dolla Sapeta.view
