(25 Feb 2018) LEADIN: African art is centre stage at an international art fair in Marrakech. It's the first time the 1-54 Contemporary African Art Fair has been held on the continent itself. STORYLINE: Marrakech is a hub of creativity and culture this weekend. It's hosting the 1-54 Contemporary African Art Fair. Moroccan artist Ghizlane Sahli's colourful three-dimensional work proves to be a perfect photo-op. This is the first time the international fair has been held in Africa, despite its mission of promoting work by artists from the continent. Its founder Touria El Glaoui believes Marrakech is the ideal location for this African debut. "It's a beautiful link between Europe and Africa," she says. "We needed also a destination that will welcome all those artists coming from different points of Africa but also the visitors that will be coming from Morocco but also from different countries of Europe and the US." Seventeen leading galleries have been selected to take part in the fair. The African imagery and influence is evident in the work on display. Six galleries are based in Africa - Nigeria, Ivory Coast and Morocco are represented. But the artists themselves originate from 25 different countries, including those from the African diaspora in Europe and the US. Artist Abdoulaye Konate is from Mali and takes time to chat to visitors about his work. He says he is "surprised" by the interest Moroccans have shown in the art fair. "We see the interest of collectors and visitors in the fair, it's almost non-stop," he says. 1-54 was first held in London in 2013. It has since held further editions both in the English capital and in New York. Some of the galleries have appeared at the fair before, including the Italy-based Primo Marella. Gallery director Elena Micheletti says a lot of thought has gone into making this African edition a special event. "We were working very carefully to choose a specific programme to be represented in Marrakech. And we were selecting artists we felt that would be able to interact very well with the taste the very high education in Marrakech," she says. The work of more than 60 emerging and established artists is on display. From Belgium to Benin, Togo to Tunisia, there is a huge variety of art in lots of different mediums for visitors to browse. The fair has been an unexpected joy for German tourist Michaela Leutowicy. "I thought there would be paintings but I was surprised that there are different types of art, different materials and also different origins," she says. The 1-54 Contemporary African Art Fair runs from 24 to 25 February. The next edition will be held in New York in May.
