Returning to New York for a second year, the 1:54 Contemporary African Art Fair announced its exhibitor list today. The fair will feature seventeen galleries, twenty-five countries, and a selection of works by over sixty artists including Derrick Adams, ruby onyinyechi amanze, Joël Andrianomearisoa, Edson Chagas, William Kentridge, Otobong Nkanga, and Billie Zangewa.

The founder of the fair, Touria El Glaoui, said, “The energy, interest, and overall success of the inaugural US fair in 2015 has lead us to return this May in hopes of broadening our reach and expanding the art world’s knowledge of Africa and the ever-evolving African art market.”

Among the countries that will be represented are Angola, Burkina Faso, Ethiopia, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Mozambique, Sierra Leone, the US, and Zimbabwe.

The fair will kick off at Pioneer Works in Red Hook, Brooklyn from May 6 through May 8.
