It has been announced that the prestigious 1-54 Art Fair will return to the ancient African city of Marrakech from February 9 – 11 next year. 

Once again the architectural masterpiece – La Mamounia, will host the event at which the work of over 60 artists from Africa and its diaspora will be showcased.

More than 20 galleries are expected to participate.

The creative energy of the Red City which goes back over 1000 years and the synergy of its multiple dynamic art, culture and gastronomic institutions will once again provide the needed impetus and ambience for the glamorous event.

This edition will as usual include an eclectic and formidable program of talks, seminars and events.

The return of the fair after a two year hiatus from Marrakech is eagerly anticipated by the city’s ebullient residents and as is always the case, a throng of well heeled and savvy art patrons and collectors is anticipated.
