1-54 London 2021

The ninth and largest edition yet.

Somerset House, Strand, London WC2R 1LA, UK

1-54 is presenting work from 47, leading international galleries from 19 countries across Europe, Africa and North America: Angola, Belgium, Brazil, Ivory Coast, Egypt, France, Germany, Ghana, Italy, Kenya, Morocco, Netherlands, Nigeria, Senegal, South Africa, Switzerland, Uganda, the United Kingdom and the United States. The fair showcases the work of more than 150 emerging and established artists, working in a wide variety of mediums and from a range of geographical backgrounds.

The fair is accompanied by 1-54 Forum, an extensive programme of artist talks, panels, screenings, performances and readings that will be curated by Dr. Omar Kholeif, Director of Collections and Senior Curator at Sharjah Art Foundation, and takes place both online and at Somerset House. Entitled “Continental Drift“, 1-54 Forum gathers artists and audiences; mediators and narrators, to collectively delve into themes of legacy, philanthropy, and digitality. Exploring this interstitial moment in history, 1-54 Forum explores the concept of the drift as a moment for gradual reflection.

Additionally, as part of the programme of 1-54 Special Projects, the fair once again is partnering with Christie’s to present an exhibition at the Duke Street space curated by art historian and art critic Christine Eyene.
