The 1-54 Contemporary African Art Fair is back in Harlem this year in a new venue.
The fair, highlighting contemporary artists from Africa and its diaspora, is moving to the Malt House, a renovated former brewery at 439 W 127th Street between Morningside and Amsterdam Avenues in the Manhattanville Factory District in West Harlem. It was held last year at the Harlem Parish.
The event will be open to the public from Friday, May 19 to Sunday, May 21, with a VIP & Press Preview on Thursday, May 18.
Twenty-six galleries from Africa and around the world will be represented, with 16 appearing in New York for the first time.
Look for the work of more than 80 artists, including self-taught artist Salifou Lindou (Cameroon), photographer Malick Welli (Senegal), and conceptual artist Kenseth Armstead (USA), to name just a few.
Art marketplace Artsy will also host the fair online from May 18-31.
Tickets to the in-person fair are $20.
