Me time: Contemporary African Art and cappuccino!


1:54 Contemporary African Art Fair in London

1:54 Contemporary African Art Fair (second year) just ended at Somerset House in London.
4 days of full immersion on Contemporary Art from Africa.
From the opening night on October 15th to the closing day on Sunday 19th we could discover and enjoy amazing artists' works, talks, studio and collectors visit, guided tours and a series of parallel events!
Touria El Glaoui, the Fair's founder, did a wonderful job. The Fair is growing embracing estimators and collectors. I met also people who came to London especially for 1:54 (which is a great success considering that it is taking place at the same time of Frieze).

It is emotional now to look at some of the precious moments at the fair.
I really enjoyed the talk between Marlene Smith and John Akomfrah, introduced by Koyo Kouoh (Raw Material Company).
