Director brings African art fair to Brooklyn

The contemporary African art fair 1:54 will make its US debut during Frieze New York at Pioneer Works in Brooklyn (15-17 May). The event will be a pop-up version of the London-based fair, established in 2013, with a smaller number of exhibitors. Among the 14 galleries participating are London’s Jack Bell Gallery, Circa Gallery of Johannesburg, Marrakesh’s Voice Gallery and Axis Gallery, New York. The fair, headed by the Moroccan-born former business consultant Touria El Glaoui, will return to London for its third edition later this year (15-18 October).
