The first Marrakech edition of 1:54 (the name refers to the number of African countries) in Marrakech will take place on February 24th and 25th, 2018. It will be the fair’s third location after London and New York City.
“This third edition of 1:54 has been in the works since our first edition in London, and we look forward to continuing to expand and support our network of galleries, artists, collectors, and partners with this new fair,” Touria El Glaoui, founding director of 1:54 art fairs, said in a statement.
The fair venue will be the historical La Mamounia Hotel, which was built in 1923 and underwent a renovation in 2009.
