1:54 Contemporary African Art Fair 2017

We were delighted to be partner with 1:54 Contemporary African Art Fair again as there is a clear synergy between 1:54 and Nando’s ambitions to showcase emerging artists from Africa.

Nando’s patronage of contemporary Southern African art, through the close partnership with Spier Arts Trust, both enables career development opportunities for artists and the curation of the Nando’s body of work.

Nando's exhibited (and all artwork was for sale) the work of four Southern African artists at 1:54 London 2017: Henk Serfontein, Marlise Keith, Patrick Bongoy, Thenjiwe Niki Nkosi. See artist profiles below.
